Building on our 2014 Adaptive Leadership study which found a significant link between an organisation’s adaptive capacity and its record on gender equality in senior leadership, The 100% Project has now delved into that finding further by examining how adaptive leadership compares with other leadership styles. Can the effect found in the previous research be generalised to day to day leadership or does adaptive leadership offer a unique advantage for cultivating an organisational culture that is supportive of women in senior leadership?
What does our latest research say about these questions and what this means for you and your organisation? The results may surprise you (or maybe not); come along to our Sydney panel event and find out.
