Abstract (Summary)

The beginning of the 21st century brought many new challenges for organizations including a need for responsiveness to a new set of business conditions such as an increase in global economic presence, more virtual team dynamics, and a decrease in general economic stability. In order to be successful in this environment, organizations need to be resilient; they need to be responsive, able to learn quickly and adjust to ever changing market demands in order to be successful. This study proposed to investigate an organization's ability to learn as well as understand better the impact of leadership in the learning dynamics for the organization. The results of this study will contribute to the field of organizational leadership through the separate fields of organizational learning and authentic leadership. By looking at the interaction of these two separate fields, the understanding of how the dynamics in a learning organization contribute to organizational success will be increased. This understanding will help organizations to strategize their learning processes to best survive in a challenging economic environment.
