How to Practice Dynamic Leadership (Sponsor)
From businesses to nonprofits to the military, all organizations can benefit from dynamic leadership. Cpl. Matthew Progen at the Marine Corps Association & Foundation describes dynamic leadership as a dual-focused form of adaptive leadership where a leader reacts to changes by being proactive. It requires a fluid style of leadership that adjusts based on the two parts of dynamic leadership.
- The first half of dynamic leadership adapts to its audience. Leaders must adjust their style to reach the people they are leading. “Now, more than ever, dynamic leadership is a vital tool to overcome the challenges of reaching every Marine in a leader’s charge,” Progen said. “Dynamic leadership does not coddle individuality; it accepts diversity and enables leaders to be effective leaders to all of their Marines. It does not encourage eccentricity; it acknowledges the innate independence and adapts.”
