To excel at leadership you must first master followership. Any person aspiring to be an effective executive would do well to read Jimmy Collins’s book Creative Followership: In the Shadow of Greatness.
– S. Truett Cathy, CEO Chick-fil-A, Inc., (from Foreword)
A gifted storyteller, he uses real events from his personal experience to paint a vivid picture of the practice of Creative Followership, the fascinating career approach that he advocates. He delivers an inspiring message for everyone.
Creative Followership reminded me how important leaders are … especially the ones I choose to follow, serve and promote. Collins brings together his lifetime of service and leadership and condenses it to 35 principles – many of which I had learned the hard way. His book is especially relevant to highly motivated and ambitious people who are on the way up the ladder. I read the book with pen in hand making notes about how my family and others could benefit from his sage advice.

The very word “Follow” has a bad rep, but there can be NO Leaders or business success unless there are those who know how to effectively FOLLOW the Leader. This Book explains the steps involved in effective “Followership.” I’m buying copies of this Book for my entire staff.
