Analyze the New Business Realities relative to Wheatley’s leadership best practices.

Write an analysis of Margaret Wheatley’s theories and perspectives on leadership and organizations. There are no page number requirements for this assessment.
Introduction
An analysis of someone else’s perspective on the application of the theories of leadership allows you to compare and contrast them against your own work experience and gives you a broader context with which to consider best practices you might want to implement in your own career.
The resources for this assessment examine the new science of leadership as well as the use of personal, purpose, and change mastery. These resources can help you become familiar with why a sense of purpose gives meaning to and helps release the energy of an authentic and congruent leader. Out of a sense of purpose, leaders develop the courage to put language around their vision.
The suggested readings also address how a leader adapts to change and why noticing resistance to change helps a leader examine ineffective old patterns. In order to lead others through change, leaders must trust themselves to think simultaneously in the present and in the future. This requires the ability to adapt and deal with ambiguity and anxiety in the midst of unfolding reality.
