Notes

Abstract: Complexity comes from dramatic structural changes to organizations and governments
such as globalization, global competition, workforce diversity, and continual innovations.
Complex adaptive systems (CAS) are organizations that are a composite of the interconnected
whole. Teams must manage and operate in emerging ecosystems, understand
factors that lead to team effectiveness when managing and facilitating teams and team
conflict, and understand the development of conflict models. This chapter provides an
overview of teams, CAS, conflict stages, and conflict models. This chapter presents adaptive
leadership as one leadership style that offers organizations with the capabilities of
reacting to changing environments quickly. Adaptive leadership offers a prescriptive
approach for managers and leaders to follow when dealing with organizational conflict
while operating in today’s complex and global environment.
