  8. 11. Toxic leaders can be characterized as leaders who take part in destructive behaviors and show signs of dysfunctional personal characteristics. It is a leadership approach that harms people—and, eventually, the company as well - through the poisoning of enthusiasm, creativity, autonomy, and innovative expression. Toxic leaders disseminate their poison through over-control. They define leadership as being in control. Paradigm Shift – “ The only way to be in control is to give it up.”
  9. 12. Webster's defines followership as &quot;The capacity or willingness to follow a leader.&quot; Followership has a much more practical definition. The technical definition does say willingness. However, the will to follow is only one type of followership. I can be someone's follower and not realize it. In actuality, everyone follows everyone else, because every action a person takes causes a reaction. Everyone is a follower, no matter where they stand.
