Professor Avolio gives a 52-minute speech on this video concerning the important subject of leadership in today's technological world. With so many of us operating business via e-mail, working at long distances from each other, often across different cultures, it is important for organizations to know how to do this best, and to lead with this new technology in mind. Information technology systems are changing the social structure of organizations in many ways. Customers and clients today are being enabled to take a leadership role in shaping organizational strategy, mission, products, and services. Employees at all levels can interact with customers and clients, as well as the most senior levels of management. Leadership and IT systems need to work together to maximize the others contribution to success.
This video is appropriate for courses on leadership, technology, and organizational behavior.
