If leadership is defined simply as "influencing others to some purpose" and followership is defined as "being influenced by others to accept some purpose", then leadership and followership emerge as two sides of the same coin. In this scenario, leadership -- whether successful or not -- has not occurred until at least one follower joins in.


Likewise, no followership exists without someone or something (not necessarily a leader) to follow. However, in this latter case, the leadership need not be deliberate or even conscious, that is, followers can follow someone who is not trying to lead. Some see "unconscious leadership" as a dubious concept, however. Many, using a different definition of leadership, would claim that it does not classify as leadership at all because no deliberate intention to lead exists. Unconscious leading by example may exemplify this.

People Skills for Better Leadership

Society today is more complex than ever before. Technology is evolving and people's expectations of leaders have shifted along with other societal changes.


The old school style of leadership was to tell people what to do and to have all the answers. It was a patriarchal approach that often included intimidation, control of information, and manipulation. People no longer respond to this outdated approach.


A leader's job is growth—to develop the company and develop the employees. Leaders must have an exact combination of knowledge and personality to be successful. True leadership is developed and refined over time; it does not come with a job title, family name, or appointment. Impactful leaders have a murky mix of skills—the key is that they can readily adapt to multiple situations.
