Abdolhossein Ayoubi, Leila Khosravi, Majid Razeghi Jahromi


With respect to the changing environment of organizations, it seems important to pay heed to the transformational leadership style. The effective and transformational leadership requires the application of systemic thinking and adaptive complex system to obtain the desired purposes. As there are inadequate number of studies done on this issue in Iran, this article examines systematic thinking, its steps, model, needed skills, transformational leadership style and the challenges of this special leadership style in a descriptive manner by the use of significant references and studies done abroad. In practice, this study can offer some suggestions to be done, and can help organizations' leaders to develop systematic thinking skills in order to be applied in practical approaches of adaptive complex system.
