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.
