Vlerick expertise in People Management & Leadership

  1. Adaptive leadership: the answer to shape your path through turbulence

    Senior managers expect more strategic leadership and process leadership from middle managers to be able to maintain and enhance performance amidst rapid, frequent and unpredictable change. That is the conclusion of professors Katleen De Stobbeleir, Carine Peeters and Steve Muylle, together with researcher Matthias Pfisterer based on recent research about leadership behaviours that contribute to organisations’ adaptiveness. The study was conducted within the Centre for Excellence in Leading Adaptive Organisations.
