Effective followership extends beyond personality. The attitudes and behaviors adopted by followers are much more important in context to becoming the best follower you can be. As well, these characteristics will help leaders become the best leaders they can become. Since leadership is contextual, understanding and choosing your behaviors are the key to learning how to best influence your environment.
Understanding that there is always a reason behind the way people behave, and why they choose to believe what they believe and do what they do is the first step toward improving followership and leadership. You can then adjust your leader strategy to encompass these behaviors and tailor how you lead to fit your organization. Improving the leader-follower relationship will improve the strength of the organization as a whole, and ultimately make you a better manager in the long run.
