Quintessential leadership of 21st century – paving through the pandemic
* Corresponding author
Organizational Leaders need to respond quickly to crises with their innovative ideas using the nascent technology. During times of crisis (Pandemic – COVID 19), this is relatively challenging due to the situation’s lack of knowledge and uncertainty.
This article essentially focuses on a set of qualities that leaders should hold in today’s day and age. We have considered the literature in leadership over past years, how it has evolved, the literature around the stages in a crisis, and what kind of skills are required to sail through each of these stages. We have collected information about how companies have reacted towards the Pandemic – COVID 19 by interviewing the top management for our data.
In the last stage, we have analyzed the data and presented the utmost skills, which will be sought after in a leadership candidate. Each of these skills has been associated with a particular Leadership style, which has a people orientation. We have introduced new terminology that is Quintessential Leadership.
Findings of this research give a new model to the existing literature.
