Can you imagine a choreographer training only one dancer to lead while his or her partner sits in the lobby staring at the wall? Unthinkable? Yet this happens all the time within organizations. Half the partnership is missing!

There is a notion that everyone should be a leader all the time and, if leadership is so game changing, we must need more of it from everyone, all the time. In fact, research shows that it takes both roles – leadership AND followership – to get the best results. They are equally valuable. Leadership is one half of a partnership.

The facilitators offer a host of new ideas and practical advice from their exciting new book Leadership is Half the Story: A Fresh Look at Followership, Leadership and Collaboration (University of Toronto Press, March 2015). It will change how you think about leadership development.

“This book practically glows with energy and vision!”
Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author and top ranked executive coach
