Dynamic Leadership: How New Innovation, Technology, Knowledge, and Analytics Have Changed the Requirements for Effective Leadership


80% of employees surveyed by research non-profit, APQC agree that today’s business challenges require a different style of leadership. The research reveals that the traditional command and control leadership style is ineffective for most, if not all, organizations and that a more dynamic and collaborative leadership style is now required for business success. However, few of the organizations surveyed embrace this dynamic leadership style.
In this session, we will share findings based on predictive analyses conducted on APQC’s leadership survey results. We will reveal which factors are behind changing organizational leadership requirements and which actions organizations can take to foster dynamic leadership.
Session participants will learn:

  • Why a dynamic leadership style is now required for business success
  • What the dynamic leadership style entails and which skills it requires organizations to develop
  • Why more organizations haven’t embraced dynamic leadership
  • Which actions—spanning recruiting, learning, rewarding, planning, and more—promote dynamic leadership
