The findings of the qualitative phenomenological study utilizing a modified van Kaam method suggested that leadership should promote exemplary followership to increase performance and that understanding who you are as a follower is equally important as knowing who you are as a person or leader. This study examined the perceptions of exemplary followership in the lived experiences of 20 aerospace company performers working on a government contract maintaining post cold war era weapons systems with reduced funding. Collected data were analyzed using NVivo7 software. The research question stated, “Is there a perception that exemplary followership exists in an organization within the large aerospace company performing on a government contract in Florida?” The findings determined that perceptions of exemplary followership exist.
