Ironically, history teaches us that leadership styles that worked brilliantly at certain periods turn out to be inadequate in susbsequent periods. The key to such transformational changes is an often overlooked source: technology. Over the last 200+ years, some technologies have driven the very structure of companies, and indeed, the very nature of leadership that society demands. For example, today we consider teams the building blocks of most organisations, but we forget that teams are a relatively recent organisational phenomenon, whose widespread adoption dates to the modern quality movement.
How we lead team-driven organisations is very different from how we led strictly hierarchical organisations. As leaders, we need to understand these distinctions, since we are undergoing another major technology-driven organisation and societal transformation today: the wide-spread emergence of networked organisations. Using history as a backdrop, we will consider principles that should underlie a new view of leadership.
