Available from Kirkdale Press on December 19th, 2017 in print and various eBook formats (see below for links).

The original book did much to surface some of the internal and personal realitiesEmbracingFollowership_CoverTexture of our followership—overcoming misconceptions, taking ownership, and engaging in personal development. There was also a consistent thread of the importance of relationship, both with one’s leader(s) and with one’s fellow followers, as crucial aspects of following with excellence.

Taking the next step in Embracing Followership necessitates moving from an individual journey into a relational context to be challenged, inspired, and encouraged as you explore the application of these ideas into your workplace, team, and community involvements.

You’ll note the title says that it’s for “Teams & Small Groups”; what’s the difference? We’ll explore that soon in a blog post, offering a reflection on the different environments within which you might engage in embracing followership!

The discussion guide itself is supported by additional free resources found on this website, with each session tied to a number of related blog posts, and there are worksheets and supplemental activities available for easy printing and download. See the Companion Resources page for more!
