  • It can also take work to step back and support others. Model a healthy followership practice by collaborating with a peer organisation or contributing to a project led by someone below you.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
