Are you a great follower?
High performance leaders know the value of a useful, enthusiastic follower. That's not someone who follows regardless of the merit of the mission or the value of the goal. Those traits matter. But when they are in place and without doubt, the mission and the goal should propel us forward -- as leaders and, when the situation calls for it, as followers.
We don't all lead at the same time. Sometimes even high performance leaders must follow.
What are you following today?
