Leadership is the linchpin connecting all three. “As a field, we have amassed an extensive body of research and theory that has solidified the importance of leadership in organizational science. Linking processes to outcomes can advance theory, and it will also provide a firmer basis for leadership interventions.”* Today’s talk will include:

7 types of leadership theories
Leadership consists of 3 drivers: Crafting a vision, building alignment, championing execution
The importance of leadership in organizational science
