Leader Development in an Unpredictable World: Transferable Sills and Organizational Development

Abstract: 

Few of us would disagree with the proposition that, under certain conditions, leaders have an impact on organizations (Kozlowski, 2012). The style of the leader makes a difference in the success of the cultures in the workforce. Leaders must use continuous improvement to stay competitive in an ever changing environment. This chapter will provide an overview of theories surrounding leadership and Organizational Development (OD). Included will be an introduction and background of leadership theories, organizational development, levels and skills of leadership, and transferable skills. Organizational success in the future will rely on the practices and processes organizations put in place now. How they develop their leaders to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing and unpredictable world.
