Throughout this course we have conversed about leadership—particularly its importance and uses within an organization. One aspect of leadership that is becoming increasingly relevant is adaptive leadership, mainly because of the ever-changing world in which we live.
In the following discussion question, compare and contrast one theory of leadership with the theory of adaptive leadership. Then select one model of adaptive leadership (e.g., situational challenges, leader behaviors, and adaptive work) and showcase how that model can be utilized to address—and potentially resolve—an issue or problem with in your organization, or one you are aware of in Saudi Arabia.
Embed course material concepts, principles, and theories (including supporting citations) along with at least one current, scholarly, peer-reviewed journal article. You may find that your discussion of leadership characteristics is easily supported with such current scholarly research, while the information about how your chosen leader exhibits those leadership characteristics is supported by popular research.
Keep in mind that current scholarly references can be found in the Saudi Digital Library by conducting an advanced search. Current research means published in the last five years.
You are required to reply to at least two peer discussion question post answers to this weekly discussion question and/or your instructor’s response to your posting. These post replies need to be substantial and constructive in nature. They should add to the content of the post and evaluate/analyze that post answer. Normal course dialogue doesn’t fulfill these two peer replies but is expected throughout the course. Answering all course questions is also required.
