About this book


The concept of followership is not new, to the extent that it has been around since the beginning of time. In the organizational literature, followership (a complementary role to leadership) was ignored until recently, when scholars observed that followers play as much of a role as leaders in their relationship to each other. Followership is a role in which an individual succumbs to the influence of another person, deemed a leader. In Strategic Followership, Dr. Zoogah focuses on the recent phenomenon of strategic followership, where an individual behaves in response to a social problem either adaptively or transcendentally. In this ground-breaking work, he explores this type of followership and illustrates the various ways it can happen.
