In my project work, I was able to identify a few effective followers including myself. I believe effective followership would be instrumental in leading a group to success irrespective of the leadership style. An effective follower will not only accept what is presented to them by the leaders, but also examine leadership and how it fits into their overall group strategy (Kelley, 2008). Firstly, an effective follower should have the courage to assume responsibility. Some of us did not shirk away from accepting out tasks as our personal responsibilities whereas some members of our team did not adequately assume responsibility. The second important trait of the effective follower is the courage to participate in transformations (Chaleff, 2008). Team work usually leads to mutual experiences in transformation, and the leader of our team was successful enough in pointing out when to make some big-time changes in what we were doing or when to speed up the work etc. Effective followers were able to follow without worries of the changes, and understood how the changes helped reshape out work better. On the other hand, we did have some skeptics looking for some trouble at all points of change. For instance, when a change decision to drop some extra research was decided upon by majority agreement, one of the skeptics of the group argued that this could lead to the simulation task gauged lower than our peers. Now we understood that it would not be the case, and it was with time that we could convince the member that the change was not bad, merely a transformative and situational step to meet time constraint. Now while this trait seemed out of line for an effective follower who should accept change and be involved in the transformative process themselves, it could be said that the trait did meet another expectation from an effective follower, namely the effective follower’s capacity to serve and be subservient, meaning we should actively question leaders (Oc &Bashshur, 2013). Therefore, the member participant who questioned was indeed doing so in the lines of active or effective followership.
