Organizational Hybrid (DL-M3)


Distributed leadership is a hybrid leadership model. This course will begin by describing what hybrid leadership models are and will explain the purpose of developing a hybrid leadership model (benefits and disadvantages) for your organization.

Description of Course

This course will investigate different leadership theories that are beneficial to complex environments and to team-based structures. Participants will be introduced to various leadership theories presented in the distributed leadership model (instrumental, strategic, global) along with the components for each theory. Participants will be encouraged to begin building a hybrid leadership model for their organization.

Leadership TheoryDefinition
Hybrid Leadership TheoriesHybrids draw from existing complementary and compatible theories, providing a common ground between scholars and practitioners. (Meuser et al., 2016)
Strategic LeadershipFocuses on the creation of meaning and purpose for the organization. (Boal & Schultz, 2007)
Instrumental LeadershipThe application of leader expert knowledge on monitoring of the environment and of performance, and the implementation of strategic and tactical solutions. (Antonakis & House, 2014)
Global LeadershipGlobal leadership should advance a) the meaning of leadership as a cultural construct, and b) the variations in local expectations regarding leader behavior. (Steers et al., 2012)

Duration of Training

The Organizational Hybrid (DL-M3) master’s course requires 16 hours of training and can be taken as a two-day in-person training session, an online live virtual class, or as an asynchronous self-paced online training using The Flow System’s learning management system (LMS). This course can be taught publicly or privately to any organization.

Participants must complete the training before receiving a code allowing them to take the Organizational Hybrid (DL-M3) assessment for accreditation. The fee for the assessment is included in the course fee for training attendees.

At the master’s level, participants will demonstrate an ability to apply the new knowledge and complete an online assessment. The master’s level courses’ application portion will be reviewed by peers and industry experts in their chosen field.

Participants who attend the training will have two attempts at the Organizational Hybrid (DL-M3) assessment. Participants who wish to forgo the training and jump straight to the assessment may do so but must first buy a code and will only have one attempt as opposed to two for people taking the training. You can buy a code below by clicking ‘Take Assessment.’
