Abstract:How do effective followers behave, and how is their behavior influenced by their work values? In this study, the relation between follower work values and follower behavior is examined. Surveys were held among followers and leaders to comprehend the work values of followers. In addition, the actual behavior of 172 followers was coded through video observation during regular staff meetings. As hypothesized, results show that highly effective followers differentiate themselves through ‘intellectually stimulating’ each other during staff meetings. In addition, the behavior ‘directing’ during regular staff meetings was found to be significantly related to the work value type ‘self-transcendence’. The other behaviors, in the analyzed behavior repertoire, did not significantly relate to the work values. These findings have important implications for a research agenda that examines the behavioral repertoire of followers, as it deepens the understanding about follower behaviors, follower work values and follower effectiveness.
