Six Types of Ambiguity

Six Types of Ambiguity | Effective Leadership | Scoop.it

In dealing with ambiguity, when it is difficult to understand why things are going wrong – we have to be able to create a diagnostic approach to the organisation as a system, and look at what is called the systems conditions – “What are the reasons that the system is as it is”.


Then looking at the systems conditions, the next question is, “What makes the system conditions?” And the answer is management thinking.

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes

Six Key Servant Leadership Attributes | Effective Leadership | Scoop.it

The 21st century has brought much in the way of turmoil and change to the world of business. As a consequence, ways of doing business that were once universally accepted now seem outdated and inflexible in an age where knowledge drives economies and socially responsible corporate attitudes influence stakeholders and shareholders alike.

 

With such changes have come new priorities and responsibilities and it is in this environment that the theory of servant leadership has flourished as a management style for the redefined business world of today, one that can serve as a cornerstone for organisations wishing to build corporate structures based on stewardship, empowerment and trust.

(From the article) Servant leadership will benefit organisations dependent on knowledge workers and in environments where high levels of creativity and innovation are the norm. Knowledge workers in particular require a sense of autonomy in order to function at their best and it is the responsibility of the servant leader to create this workplace freedom for them.
