Leadership and followership presentation: section 2 | WMBA 6000 – Dynamic Leadership | Walden University


Note: This week, you will complete and submit Section 2 of your Leadership and Followership Presentation. You submitted Section 1 in Week 4 and, in Week 6, you will submit the completed presentation (including the embedded script), which includes Section 3. 

As you will recall from last week’s Assignment, you are developing a presentation using the following scenario:

You have been asked by your manager to present at this year’s annual Dynamic Leadership conference. The subject of your presentation is on followership and how it contributes to effective leadership in a business context.
The basic outline for this presentation will include three sections:
Section 1: Followership Defined
Section 2: The Leader-Follower Interaction
Section 3: Traits of Leadership and Followership

For this week’s Assignment, you will complete and submit Section 2 of the PowerPoint presentation. In addition to the slide content, you should also include text in the speaker notes section of each slide that would serve as the script you would use to deliver this presentation to a group of people. As you prepare your presentation and script, be sure to cover all items outlined for Section 2, including the incorporation of references to appropriate academic sources, such as those found in the Learning Resources or those in the Walden Library.



Submit Section 2 of your presentation and script. Be sure you are fully addressing the following in 3–5 slides, excluding references:

Section 2: The Leader-Follower Interaction

  • Analyze how followers can influence the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of leaders.
    • Hint: Your analysis should consider how followers empower or enable leaders’ behaviors (for good or bad).
  • Illustrate how followers can effectively communicate and collaborate with a leader whose style is not consistent with what they desire or with a leader they do not admire.
  • Propose at least three strategies for how leaders can better empower and support followers in meeting their goals.
