Aug 13, 2019

By Sunday Tollefson, MBA, PMP® 

This week's micro-learning subject is the fifth of a nine-part series from the book "How to Be a Star at Work: 9 Breakthrough Strategies You Need to Succeed" by Robert E. Kelley.

The fifth strategy is FOLLOWERSHIP.

Studies show that only 10% of organizational outcomes are attributable to leadership. That means a whopping 90% of outcomes are thanks to the followers. Star performers know how to capitalize on this metric and become star followers. In a leadership frenzy world, they learn to check their egos at the door and instead of leading, lead in "assists." Key aspects of followership for star performers include: Being proactive, being a fact finder, being an advice seeker, being a system player, being persuasive, being courageous, and being a follower. Watch the video to learn more about each of these tactics.
