Model of Followership
Research the Kelley model of followership beginning with the article by Bjugstad, Thach, and Thompson (2006):
Bjugstad, K., Thach, E., & Thompson, K. (2006). A fresh look at followership: A model for matching followership and leadership styles. Journal of Behavioral & Applied Management, 7(3), 304-319.
Then, write an essay that addresses the following elements:

- Describe how a leader might utilize the Kelley model of followership to assess follower effectiveness.
- Identify the categories of followers.
- Explain how knowledge of effective followership can help one’s leadership perspective.

Utilize an academic online Library to locate two sources to use as references that support your essay. Your essay should be two to three pages in length.
Be sure to include the rubric elements from the guidelines below:

- The organization results in clarity and presents logically arranged points to support the proposed solution.
- The writing is clear and concise with correct sentence structure, grammar, and punctuation, and it is free from spelling errors.
