Book description: "Bravo to Barbara Kellerman! Building upon a lifetime of scholarship and upon a popular course she has created at Harvard, Kellerman brings between the covers of a single volume the world's classic literature on leadership. Every thoughtful leader will find deep, rich rewards here. Leadership , says author, leadership expert, and Harvard Professor Barbara Kellerman, "is all about what leaders should learn—but it is decidedly not, deliberately not, about what leadership education has lately come to look like. Instead, Leadership is a concise yet expansive collection of great leadership literature that has stood the test of time. As Kellerman makes clear in her extensive, authoritative commentaries, every single selection has had, and continues to have, an impact on how and what we think about what it means to lead. And every single one has had an impact on leadership as an area of intellectual inquiry—as well as on the course of human history.

Why People Follow the Leader: The Power of Transference
But getting them requires more than your talent and charisma. Followers are driven by their own powerful motivations. We all admire leaders. In trying to understand how leadership works, however, we often lose sight of the fact that followers are a crucial part of the equation. What most analyses seem to ignore is that followers have their own motivations and are as powerfully driven to follow as leaders are to lead. He looks closely at the often irrational tendency to relate to a leader as some important person from the past—a parent, a sibling, a close friend, or even a nanny.
The distinctions among followers are every bit as consequential as those among leaders—and have critical implications for how managers should manage. Countless studies, workshops, and books have focused on leaders—the charismatic ones, the retiring ones, even the crooked ones. Some works even fail to sufficiently distinguish among varying types of followers—barely registering the fact that those who tag along mindlessly are a breed apart from those who are deeply devoted and consciously, actively involved. In this article, Kellerman explores the evolving dynamic between leaders and subordinates and offers a typology that managers can use to determine and appreciate how their followers are different from one another. Using the level of engagement with a leader or group as a defining factor, the author segments followers into five types: Isolates are completely detached; they passively support the status quo with their inaction. Bystanders are free riders who are somewhat detached, depending on their self-interests. Participants are engaged enough to invest some of their own time and money to make an impact.
Five years ago, the author reported on the impact instruction in followership had in helping a government agency achieve a significant change in workplace culture. The literature suggests that followers can partner with the leader to advance organizational objectives and enhance outcomes through proactive participation. Evidence from three followership programs suggests that indoctrination in followership principles leads to better understanding of the impact follower contributions play in achieving mission-related goals. This paper suggests that followership instruction increases the potential for followers to make meaningful contributions that enhance organizational agility and competitiveness while simultaneously improving leader strategies for engaging followers. Instruction in the principles of followership is gaining momentum in academia and in the public and private sectors.
