Abstract : Leadership experts agree that a key challenge facing leaders now and in the future is responsiveness to radical change. This article continues prior work on radical change with theory and research on leadership style. The result is a model of radical change describing the leadership styles best suited to the successful implementation of each stage in the change process. Using the Leadership Style Inventory, leaders can determine which stages of radical change they are equipped to handle. The article explores how individual and group leadership style limitations can be dealt with to ensure radical change success.
