We live in an increasingly complex, fast-paced and interconnected world, where breakthrough technologies, demographic shifts and political transformations have far-reaching societal and economic consequences. Our societies increasingly face systemic challenges that cannot be addressed through the conventional linear approach of hierarchical corporate and governmental structures.
Unprecedented collaboration among the different stakeholders at organizational, sectorial, municipal, national and international levels will be progressively required to find smart and sustainable answers, transforming complex problems into abundant opportunities. Sensing this growing need, numerous initiatives have emerged in recent years
– locally, regionally and globally. Yet, in many cases these initiatives had no, or only limited, impact, partly because they failed to foster collective leadership within and across the collaborating organizations. Consequently, we can observe a growing controversy in the leadership literature, pointing out that leadership models designed for the past decades may not completely capture the leadership dynamic needed in organizations operating in today’s knowledge-driven economy.
In his reflections in From Systemic Failure to Systemic Leadership, William Tate at Cass Business School, City University London, explains: “Systemic leadership changes everything. Once you get into the habit of taking a systemic perspective, you begin to observe leadership with a new focus. In the systemic model, leadership is a property of the organization, not of the people inside it. Take the global banking crisis. The banks didn’t suddenly collapse as a result of individual leaders’ lack of skills or poor behaviour; it was the dynamics of the banking system that played the major part. The fact is that we live in an organizational economy. Businesses, trade and society work or fail because of the way organizations operate as systems in delivering outcomes: products and services.”
