Product description

Review

"Embracing Followership challenged and changed me--one of the rare books that can challenge your worldview and make you glad you read it. Allen manages to exalt followers without disparaging leaders, proving the unique value of each and providing practical steps to move us toward the mutually beneficial place of respect and value for the contributions of both." --T. J. MacLeslie, minister, missionary, and author of Designed for Relationship

"Embracing Followership may be among the top 10 most fresh, provocatively insightful expressions of what kind of thinking can 'set the readers free' from mindless cultural expectations on us that we've unconsciously imbibed. If you are one of the multitudes who can't escape thinking you should be more of a leader, this book is for you. It marvelously clarifies the reality of how we are all both leaders and followers and are 'blessed' when we find ourselves 'at home' with that reality. I plan to distribute dozens of copies!" --Greg Livingstone, founder, Frontiers

"All too often we forget that strong leadership implies that people are following. This is an excellent treatment of a topic that is mostly ignored. Just about anybody can benefit from reading this book." --Dr. Ted Esler, president, Missio Nexus

"Allen Hamlin writes on followership with an elevating language that imbues this form of relationship with service, grace, and individuality. A very welcome addition to the growing literature on followership." --Ira Chaleff, author of The Courageous Follower

"I love Allen's heart and the book God has grown out of who he is. He is right. We live in a 'leader-driven culture' where there is little focus on the spiritual integrity and dignity of 'followership.' Jesus called us to 'follow Him, ' and the church is the strongest when together we follow Him and the design He has for us as His people. We are called to excel in followership. Well done, Allen, and thank you." --Dr. Hal Habecker, founder, Finishing Well Ministries

"In Embracing Followership, Hamlin has punctuated the important truth of followership--that followership is a matter of function not value. In other words, a follower's value is found in his living out his relational followership. Hamlin gives tremendously practical ways to live this out in the context of a healthy leader/follower team." --Dr. Ed Scheuerman, coordinator, Intercultural Studies Program, Lancaster Bible College

"The genius of Allen's approach and treatment of this subject of "followership" is that each of us is a follower in some way in almost every aspect of our lives. This is a thoughtful exploration and consideration of what it means to excel as a follower, which is essential for all of us to enhance our friendships, our workplaces, our communities, and our faith. Embracing Followership should be required reading for those working in a group setting, since developing our followership abilities has a direct effect on improving our teams, our leaders, and our organizations." --Duane E. Okamoto, senior attorney, Microsoft Corporation --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
