Leadership is an overrated and often unappealing role in contemporary organizations, says Political Science Professor J. Norman Baldwin. He is the author of Winning at Following, in which he addresses how to be a great follower, a road less traveled that, ironically, affects far greater numbers of people than the millions of epistles directed at the few who are leaders. He says, "I will always contend that followership is an awful position when subordinates are subjected to growth-depressing jobs, incompetent leaders, and abusive bosses…However, in healthy work environments…a follower can head home each night with a sigh of contentment, if not a giddy grin, knowing that much was accomplished without the yoke of unpleasant responsibilities that shackle the time and emotions of leaders." /nbaldwin.people.ua.edu
