Fostering Professionalism and Ethics for Young Leaders

The history of leadership is abundant with theories, from the “Great Man” theory that proposes certain men are born with the traits required to lead, to the contingency theory according to which leadership is more like a mix and match of styles to the circumstances. As business has gone global along with an exponential increase in technology innovations, learning organizations are more closely re-evaluating and re-imagining the role of future leaders and how to develop them.

According to a report by Wharton University, employees want more ownership rather than instructions; customers want to participate in the marketing and development processes; and leaders are finding that open and agile organizations are able to maneuver more effectively than organizations where “all insight and direction comes from the top”. It means that the autocratic leader, whether brilliant or not, will not succeed. Competencies like being Humble, Adaptable, Visionary and Engaged distinguish agile leaders from non-agile leaders.
