    Story
    "A Follower, Not A Sheep"
    Would you listen to The Courageous Follower again? Why?

    Yes. I've read it previously in fact. This book isn't a "self-help" book so much as it is a philosophy book & I think there's benefit from repeat exposure.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The book does a good job of putting followership into context. From an early age we're taught that we should always be leaders; being a follower is equated with weakness. But, as Chaleff explains, an individual may have several leadership roles, but also some follower roles, and vice-versa. We wear a lot of different hats in life. Sometimes we're leaders, other times followers. And that's a good thing.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked the notion of being a responsible follower. It illustrates the delicate balance between faithfully executing the aims of leadership in a responsible way and in being a slavish devotee--when to try to change an organization from the inside and when to be a whistle-blower.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    A Follower, Not A Sheep. I also think the book's subtitle "Standing Up To And For Our Leaders" would make a good tag-line.
