Embracing Followership : How to Thrive in a Leader-Centric Culture
We live in a leader-centric culture. We're constantly bombarded with advice on how to achieve leadership positions or how to lead well once we get there. We've made leadership out to be the mark of success. But what if leadership isn't our goal? What if we want to do well where we are? Can we use our skills to perform with excellence--as followers? In Embracing Followership, Allen Hamlin Jr. shares from his own experience how you can succeed as a follower without anyone reporting to you. You offer unique contributions to every group you're a part of, and you don't need to be a leader to make a difference.

"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. If you are one of the multitudes who can't escape thinking you should be more of a leader, this book is for you. It marvelously clarifies the reality of how we are all both leaders and followers and are 'blessed' when we find ourselves 'at home' with that reality. I plan to distribute dozens of copies!" --Greg Livingstone, founder, Frontiers
