Characteristics of Leadership Effectiveness: Implementing Change and Driving Innovation in Organizations
Gilley, Ann; Dixon, Pamela; Gilley, Jerry W.
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v19 n2 p153-169 Sum 2008
Research indicates that numerous variables impact a leader's effectiveness. In this study, the authors explore leadership effectiveness in driving change and innovation, along with the precursory skills necessary to do so. The findings confirm previously identified low rates of organizational success with change and point to skill deficiencies as a cause. Specifically, the abilities to communicate appropriately and motivate others significantly influence a leader's ability to effectively implement change and drive innovation. (Contains 3 tables.)
