The New Leadership
Adel Safty leads a group of scholars and leadership practitioners from around the world in examining leadership challenges in different contexts. The New Leadership emphasizes consultative decision-making and empowerment in style, and the creation of a positive environment in which people feel emotionally secure and rewarded in substance. The New Leadership is therefore based on the notion that ultimately leadership is about people and their human development. To ensure success at the task at hand, the new leadership style can find no more effective way than to help promote positive feelings for all in the work environment. In short the new leadership is about the creation of common meanings, the construction of shared vision, and the formation of positive human relationships. Dr. Safty argues that leadership is not a descriptive concept, but a value-laden concept; and that at its best it fosters human development.
