Followership is a process where an individual accepts the influence of another to accomplish a common goal. There are many typologies of followership including the following: Zaleznik Typology, Kelly Typology, Chaleff Typology, Kellerman Typology, and others. Select two typologies to contrast and compare. Include follower dimensions of importance, as well as the impact to leaders. Which typology do you think is, or will be, most useful in your current work or future work environment, and why?
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supporting citations) along with at least one current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. You may find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with such current scholarly research while the information about how your chosen leader exhibits those leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.
Keep in mind that current scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search specific to scholarly references. Current research means published in the last five years.
