This study is likely unique in its outlook as the Western (predominantly North American / European) leadership literature is examined through the lens of Saudi Arabian woman who has received a Master of Education degree in Multidisciplinary Leadership from a recognized Canadian university. In an attempt to improve our Saudi educational system to benefit learners and educators, I have chosen to focus on leadership and followership in the educational domain. I thought about how leaders and followers can understand and integrate leadership and followership styles for their own benefit and the benefit of the organization. This project the Leadership Followership Learning Organization (LFLO) Project synthesizes many sources of data to provide the Saudi system with tangible procedures that can be useful and helpful in improving the quality of education in the country. It will become effective when leaders have an understanding of leadership styles that would facilitate which type of tasks can be appropriate for followers and a clear notion of how to organize the workplace that allow leaders and followers to realize each other's styles so that all can function more effectively in a workplace setting. --Leaf ii.
