We understand the importance of great leadership, but what about its counterpart—great followership? Lead & Follow reveals the overlooked strength and subtlety of the follower’s role through the striking metaphor of tango, a dance of one leader and one follower.
Learning to follow well can give employees a deep sense of purpose, bring out the best in managers and supervisors, and accelerate creative innovation. When paired with familiar aspects of leadership, skillful followership can help teams synchronize quickly and produce superior results.
In her three-part coaching model, dancer Sharna Fabiano demonstrates how to bring the powerful and complementary leader/follower principles of tango into the workplace. An abundance of practical strategies and self-inquiry exercises will help professionals, educators, and teams collaborate more successfully.
