Good evening everyone,
1. What central or primary position is being advanced in each of the 4 HBR articles?
The main or primary position being advanced in each of the 4 HBR articles is the relationship between followers and leaders. The correlation between the relationships of followers and leaders. The articles also outline studies that show why do followers decide to follow leaders, even bad leaders. Some follow bad leaders based on their desire to be bad, but others do it for other reasons such as perceived security, gain, or survival.
2. How does each of the 4 HBR articles differ from one another regarding their primary point(s) of emphasis?
Although each article discussed follower and leader relations and correlation, some differed in outlining how followers make great leaders. For instance, in the article, Why Great Followers Make the Best Leaders, C. Musselwhite identifies six key ways followers can make great leaders. The report also discusses how being an effective follower can get you in the inner circle of a leader and increase your chances of becoming a candidate for other leading roles within an organization.
3. What primary insight(s) did you learn about the complex interaction between followers and leaders?
In the article, Why Leader and Followers Misbehave by B. Kellerman, I learned about the complex reasons a person would follow a bad leader. It was interesting to read this because I have always wondered what would drive a person to follow someone if it is evident that the person lacks morality, integrity, selfishness, and self-serving.
4. If you were acting as an Industrial-Organizational interventionist in an organization that had asked you to provide two separate training sessions, one for leaders and the other for followers, on the keys to understanding and working more effectively with each other, what points would you emphasize that both groups could put into practice quickly?
To provide proper training, I would begin by evaluating the current relationship between the followers and leaders in the organization. I would start asking questions to see where relations currently stand between leaders and followers, where it could be improved; finally, I would provide a solution. Without having specific insight about a particular company to deliver what points I would emphasize, my instinct is always toward better communication. Better communication begins with one’s ability to understand others. In my view, it is the leaders’ responsibility to take the initiative in better understanding their followers and create an atmosphere that will lead to their success. Leaders are evaluated on the success or failure of their teams. To use a sports analogy, when the team wins, the coach is a genius; when they lose, it’s time to fire the coach!
