Nurture the Follower

While this seems intuitive, it was stunning to see the benefits of nurturing the follower play out in such a clear example as the dancing man.  I see this a lot in residency, someone has an idea and rather than encourage brainstorming with colleagues, deviations are shut down quickly.  Change is not an individual, but a momentum.  Leadership is not to see one’s ideas through but promote what is good for the group.  I am eager to return to become the first follower in an effort to combat the change fatigue without real change we face at my program.
