Adapt Your Leadership Style - GMBA803

The popular business press routinely romanticises the idea of the heroic business leader, who boldly and with great vision takes his or her company forward in brave new strategic directions and through dramatic organisational transformations. But how true are these descriptions of leadership? If the world is producing so many great leaders, why is the World Economic Forum reporting an 86% distrust of contemporary leadership? Why are organisational misbehaviours, such as cynicism, apathy, bullying and disengagement, seen to be increasingly prevalent? This unit examines these tensions by looking at how transformational, authentic, and inclusive leadership styles are, in theory and practice, providing an alternative to more autocratic, job-centred, and command and control leadership styles.
