Abstract:What actual follower behaviors are important for their effectiveness? Through a video-observation study of 42 followers in seven regular staff meetings we tested hypotheses on the behavior of followers. We used earlier developed, reliable scheme for the coding of the videos. Factual informing and task monitoring by the followers has a positive respectively negative significant relationship with follower effectiveness. Also, as hypothesized the relationship between informing and follower effectiveness was moderated through LMX. The results are important in order to have a better understanding of not only the follower itself, but also the leader. Implications of the results for followership and leadership are discussed.
