LEADERSHIP SKILLS IN A FAST MOVING AND MUCH DEMANDING WORLD
In a dynamic and complex environment that is characterized by rapid developments in technology, easier access to information and expertise, and changing preferences of a diverse set of stakeholders, it cannot only be the leader who leads. To effectively balance a continuous call for cost efficiency and a need for sustainable and innovative solutions, it requires that everyone in an organization takes responsibility for leadership as well as followership. This has profound consequences for what is required of people in a leadership position.
This lecture offers a lens to make sense of the dynamics in the environment and clarifies the consequences of different dynamics for leader and follower behavior. It will enable you to identify your preferred leader behaviors and those that you find potentially challenging. Insight into the type of context you work in as well as your leadership comfort zone are key ingredients for further leadership development.
