Great leadership today looks different than it did even a few years ago. We use the five elements shown in the figure below to frame the levers for becoming a more Innovative Leader. To learn more about the Innovative Leadership model, you may be interested in a free webinar.
One of the elements, Developmental Perspective, is aligned with the idea of leadership maturity captured in the concept of “Level 5 Leadership” in Jim Collins’s best-selling business book “Good to Great.” His work, along with the research of Bill Torbert, Professor Emeritus of Leadership at the Carroll School of Management at Boston College, suggests that leadership development and specifically moving to the later developmental perspectives is imperative when transforming large complex organizations.
