Be the Horse or the Jockey uses the metaphor of a professional horse race to explore the leader/follower relationship and the Follower role as a desirable, attainable, and rewarding part of a Life Strategy. Horse or Jockey provides an uncommon approach to the strategic Follower role that disputes and changes the perception that being a Follower is "second best." The reader will discover what followership means, why choosing to be a Follower should be included in a personal Life Strategy, and how to deliver on the Followership Process. The self-guided Comfort and Value Quiz allows readers to discover their preferred role as Followers, Leaders, and/or Flip-Floppers. A practical list of 110 tips and techniques-illustrated by examples, anecdotes, and ons drawn from life-supports the four-step Followership Process.
Be the Horse or the Jockey is a how-to book for success as a professional Follower and offers both a strategic and a practical approach to this powerful role. Finalist Winner of the 2009 Next Generation Indie Book Award
