Fierce, innovation-driven competition is forcing a new way of thinking about leadership among senior executives and technical managers throughout the world.
Successful leaders are moving away from “command and control” in favor of “cultivate and coordinate” strategies that allow them to:
- innovate and move quickly from generating ideas to executing and diffusing them throughout the organization.
- unlock crucial information, expertise, and new ways of working together, wherever these qualities reside within or outside the company
In a competitive “flat world” of smart, orchestrated networks, tiny firms that do not need huge capitalization to compete, and new organizational architectures, successful leaders are moving to make their organizations more agile, responsive, and creative.
How are they doing it? How can you do it? In Transforming Your Leadership Strategy, you learn about a powerful, innovative approach to executive leadership that lies at the core of leadership development at MIT, the result of an intensive, four-year research project at the MIT Leadership Center to identify more effective strategies for leading in a networked economy.
Tested in diverse, real-world settings, MIT’s unique Distributed Leadership Model allows you to succeed as a leader by being flexible and adaptive in ways you may not have imagined, through the application of two key concepts:
- a 4 Capabilities Leadership Framework that makes it possible to harness, align, and leverage the leadership capabilities that exist all across your organization, and
- X-Teams, a revolutionary approach to creating flexible, outwardly- focused project teams that enables you to both keep current with shifts in markets, technologies, and competition, and accelerate the pace of innovation and change
