Focus on “Followership”: The Secret To Great Leadership by Denise Barreto at Willow Creek Association Blog on 8 August 2013

A rapid read article that was generated by former US General Colin Powell’s visit to the Willow Creek Association.  He provided three tips focused on how great leaders create a sense of fellowship with their followers:

  1. I’m not getting the work done – the leader creates the vision, but empowers and supports the followers in getting the work done
  2. Everyone has a purpose – know how to get the best out of all of your people
  3. It’s always about the followers – “without followers, you are not a leader” – this comes back to the principle of servant leadership
