Leadership and followership is very important in any organizations and Kelley’s model of followership shows the importance and how-to followership should be seen. It is not the same, to be a follower is not a bad thing. If leaders didn’t have effective followers they would not have a growing organization. Followership has always been looked down upon, but now is the time to see what they can do and help them grow into leaders. Just like leadership there are good leaders and bad leaders, depending how good of a leader they are will affect their followers.
However, it has to be a wide and inclusive identity. For instance, a black leader like Jackson, refer to a rainbow to define American nation. Moreover, charismatic leaders refer to values and moral justifications while giving hope to their followers and referring to faith. The charisma of a leader is directly related to his image in the minds of his followers. He had to be reliable and the followers should have faith in him.
A leader who puts the overall organizations interest above his own personal interest and has a great vision for betterment of the society as a whole has that charismatic appeal, and thus people tend to follow such people. This type of leader takes everyone under consideration and cares about everyone. Both characteristicsempathy and self-sacrifice were obviously eminently present in Mandela’s case.
(Keith, 2018) The practice of servant leadership rooted about two thousand years ago and now, a man named Robert Greenleaf redefined it with his 1970 publication A Servant as Leader. Greenleaf defined the servant-leader as follows: "The servant-leader is servant first... It begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. That
In this way, he established a culture of learning in his administration, said Kearns Goodwin” (Moreton). Also, he had the ability to control his emotions and not let his anger escalate to something bigger. “When Lincoln was particularly angry he had a habit of writing a letter to the person he was angry with and setting it aside, often not sending it, but rather expressing those emotions on paper” (Adubato). This is an extremely important trait in leader because it is easier to talk to a leader that controls his emotions. This ability also let Lincoln have the ability to discuss problems with opposing views and work out a solution without getting anger.

Studies done by Burns (1978) differentiates between transactional leaders and transformational leaders. Bass (1985) reasons that transformational leadership comprises of four factors: idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individual consideration. Sir Richard Branson chairman and founder of the Virgin Group (Branson, 2007) is frequently described as a transformational leader. Branson is known for his charisma and leading by example both characteristics of idealised influence. To promote Virgin Cola he drove a tank into Times Square to represent the start of a war with Pepsi and Coca Cola (Kotler et al, 2012), What makes Branson exceptional is that he still finds time to give back, idealised influence reflects the extent to which the leader chooses to do the right thing rather than what is
Servant Leadership is a leadership theory that was first presented by Robert K. Greenleaf in 1970. Northouse (2017) describes this leadership model as when, “servant leaders place the good of followers over their own self-interest and emphasise follower development” (p. 226). The servant leadership model includes ten characteristics for leaders to use to implement this approach. These characteristics are; listening, empathy, healing, awareness, persuasion, conceptualization, foresight, stewardship, commitment to the growth of people, and building community. The emergency services field (law enforcement, firefighting, and emergency medical services) is a field that is focused on serving others, and is a field that benefits greatly from
Being a good leader does not necessarily mean shining in the spotlight. Some of the most revolutionary and successful leaders are the ones who worked the lights. Self-awareness, self-direction, vision, ability to motivate, and social awareness are the characteristics of a good leader according to SIY Leadership Institute (SIYLI). There have been many accomplished and renowned leaders in America since (and before) the 1770’s, ones whose names are universally known and others who are unfamiliar. Of the latter is Alexander Hamilton, who showed potential since the minute he was put on earth, for no matter what obstacles were thrown in his way he forged ahead and never threw away his shot.
