Abstract

The followership field remains overshadowed by the leadership field, with traditional assumptions attached to the follower concept further undervaluing the importance of progressive understandings of leadership. This paper considers following as a relational process and provides illustrative extracts from empirical research. Future areas for research are discussed, as well as the importance of incorporating followership into the leadership education agenda.

Key words: Followership, relational social constructionism, qualitative, visual research methods.
