“The genius of Allen’s approach and treatment of this subject of ‘followership’ is that each of us is a follower in some way in almost every aspect of our lives. This is a thoughtful exploration and consideration of what it means to excel as a follower, which is essential for all of us to enhance our friendships, our workplaces, our communities, and our faith. Embracing Followership should be required reading for those working in a group setting, since developing our followership abilities has a direct effect on improving our teams, our leaders, and our organizations.”
“All too often we forget that strong leadership implies that people are following. This is an excellent treatment of a topic that is mostly ignored. Just about anybody can benefit from reading this book.”
“Allen has written a helpful resource for people who have read his book and want to go deeper together. The chapters tie right in with the text of the book. He also offers detailed assistance with helping people apply the concepts to their workplace, volunteering roles, and church and ministry.”
“Embracing Followership may be among the top 10 most fresh, provocatively insightful expressions of what kind of thinking can ‘set the readers free’ from mindless cultural expectations on us that we’ve unconsciously imbibed.
“Allen Hamlin’s book caused me to think of followership in a fresh way….if you are a bit like me, and your mind really is in a ‘leader-centric’ world, then let this book cause you to feel uncomfortable and make you think about followership.”
