4 lessons in adaptive leadership
from Harvard Business Review
The armed services have been in the business of leadership development much longer than the corporate world has. For more than two centuries, America has trained its officers to be effective leaders in combat and beyond; the U.S. Military Academy at West Point dates to 1802. But warfare has changed, and so has business. Military leaders need new tools and techniques to face a fast-changing and unpredictable type of enemy -- so the armed services train their officers in ways that build a culture of readiness and commitment. Business leaders need just such a culture to survive and succeed, given that they, too, face unprecedented uncertainty -- and new types of competitors.
