Nursing Leadership & Management

Followership is an emerging concept and it is described as a set of skills and behaviors that help improve team performance. An effective leader creates vision, sets direction and enables a culture in which others can thrive and work together to deliver organizational goals. Like leadership, good followership is increasingly being recognized as an important component of high performance. (Whitlock 2013)
