In the premises of the American University od Bosnia and Herzegovina (AUBiH), prof. dr. Selmo Cikotić promoted his book „Liderstvo – teorija i praksa“. This scientific research was preceded by the same topic of many lectures in postgraduate and doctoral studies at the Faculty of Political Sciences and at international conferences.
The significance of the interaction of leaders, followers and the situation for understanding leadership is of enormous significance: from a higher viewpoint - leadership as a position (where the leader is), as a process (how it works), as a personality (who is the leader) and as a result (what are the effects of leadership ). Also, understanding the position, attitudes and views of the leader itself can also have several different aspects. The diversity of the overall environment in Bosnia and Herzegovina offers many opportunities for leaders of different types and different tendencies to affirm their possibilities, ideas and abilities in terms of changing and improving the current situation.
This context imposes the need to contextualize the relationship between the leader and the follower, in the sense that the quality of the followers is significantly determined by the quality of the leaders. The more complex, more organized and demanding the followers, their expectations and the demands on the leader will be at a higher level. Since there are several different nations living in the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina, it is useful to recall the wisdom that the maturity and the building of one nation can be seen from the way in which the people of that nation relate to each other, and especially as they relate to their first ones, their leaders.
