Followership and Leadership

What is Followership and why is it important?

We hear the word leadership a lot these days. But, what are leaders without followers? There are more followers than leaders in every organization. And most (if not all) of the leaders are also followers. 

Followership is integral to successful strategic engagement. It is time to focus on followership and understand how it impacts teams and organizations. 

From Strategy to Tactics

What is Strategy and why is it important?

We all engage strategy and tactics in our work and home. By learning and understanding strategy and tactics, leaders and followers are more likely to find a state of co-flow where they work in synergy and in support of each other.

So it’s important for people at every level of an organization to understand how strategy, tactics, and followership work together.

My Story

I have spent over 20 years studying and researching followership, leadership, and strategy. And I have been educating teams, managers, students, IDF soldiers, one-year program groups, youth groups, campers, and more about how to engage strategy and leadership for over 15 years. I got my nickname “Dr. D.” from one of my students while teaching at Bar-Ilan University over the last 10+ years.

Born and raised in the USA, I came to Israel over 25 years ago on a one year program. The moment I set foot in the country, I knew that I was home.


I am the only wheelchair user participating in International Practical Shooting Confederation competitions in Israel. These are videos of my competitions and practices.
