Abstract

Leading Organizational Systems

Author(s): Sherrie Pafford

There are many different leadership styles which, depending on the leader, have varying levels of success. Using one type of leadership style does not necessarily work at all companies, and the traditional (command and control) style is prevalent in quite a few. Leaders should spend time developing networks to allow for collaboration and innovation. This review article offers a breakdown of systems theories and approaches that provide a discussion, comparison, and analysis on systems thinking, leadership, adaptation, and innovation.
