Dynamic Followership: The Prerequisite for Effective Leadership - Article by Lt. Colonel Sharon M. Latour and Lt. Col. Vicki J. Rast
USAF article, focused on mentoring - and leadership, rather than pure followership

Editorial Abstract: Rather than encouraging leaders to mentor followers to "follow me" as an imitation learning imperative, leaders may mentor to specific and objective abilities/traits to create dynamic subordinates. These dynamic follower competencies form a foundation from which follower initiative can grow to leader initiative more naturally. The identified follower competencies help leaders focus their mentoring efforts. This approach encourages followers to develop fully, based on their personalities, strengths and weaknesses, and situational factors.
