CEO and CHRO Leadership Roles and Styles for Organization Development


Leadership styles make an impact. Research studies have indicated that creating a learning climate through empowering and energizing styles help building sustainable organizations. Leaders who used benevolent and charismatic styles get a lot of work done but leave a dependence culture and critical leaders get work done with high overheads and employee turn over.

Join us while we kick off our Inaugural show of the year 2015 with our honored guest Dr. T V Rao on February 17th,Tuesday at 8pm IST / 8.30 am CST /9.30 am EST. 

  • How do we help our CEO realize the impact of his/her leadership style on the people down below and how do we build sustainable organizations.
  • What are the roles a CEO should perform
  • How should the CHRO influence the CEO to gain style flexibility?

These issues will be discussed. Prof. Rao has developed a leadership style measurement tool based on his work with Prof. David McClelland and Abigail Stewart. The session will focus on the issues dealing with the roles and styles of CEOs and CHROs and ways of managing them for maximal impact of HR.
