The Emergence of Appreciative Leadership in Thailand


  • Adchariya Auppakarakul.Ph.D.


Leadership is one of the most important topics for today's organizations. This is because organizations need more than just management to cope with the rapid changes of today's business environment. Organizations need to develop themselves not only to survive but also to sustain their leadership for the business. As a result, leadership becomes one of the key organizational competencies to develop. A leader who only knows how to act as a manager is much less likely to have the capability to build a positive working environment, to focus on vision and future value, and to inspire and motivate coworkers to move beyond their KPI targets. A leader who assumes the leadership role with the right competencies is more likely to create not only those success factors, but also to build a happier workplace and a higher performing organization.
