You will receive a certificate of successful completion on how to teach this material.

MethodologyFollowership Train the Trainer

Participants will be given a full suite of slides that they may use or modify to suit the needs of their programs and classes. They will also receive worksheets they may use or modify for interactive and experiential exercises. To effectively teach courageous followership, requires first examining one’s own relationship to authority from both the follower and leader role. The first day of the program will give participants an opportunity to experience this through a variety of learning tools. The second day will address participants as teachers, trainers and facilitators, providing a pedagogical grounding in the flow of the curriculum and options for customizing presentations to different lengths of time and participant profiles.


Ira Chaleff has been a leader in the field of followership for 20 years.
