Competency

Critique the impact of leadership on organizational outcomes.

Scenario

As part of a global pandemic in 2020, many companies directed their employees to work from home (WFH). There were so many uncertainties that companies were faced with making decisions on whether to continue with their WFH strategy. In the meantime, leadership worried about keeping their employees productive. Many leaders are still adjusting to this paradigm shift. As the organizational development manager, you decide to address the issue of WFH and the impact of this decision on the organization in a presentation in the upcoming C-suite leadership meeting.
