There exist a whole range of advice on leadership. One of those gaining traction these days is the belief that good leaders start off as good followers themselves. This is because the leaders are only as effective as how well they can engage their followers. An experiment was conducted on a group of elite Royal Marines. It emerged that those who considered themselves as natural leaders ended up the exercise not managing to exert their authority in comparison to those who didn’t rate their own leadership capabilities. The latter group was seen as “working for us” and not “working for them”. Thus, management training programmes aimed at creating leaders at the micro-level need to consider the fact that distancing oneself from a group does not elevate their levels, but merely accentuates a diffidence.
