Abstract:

Purpose – To examine the leadership requirements and challenges that need to be considered for future organizational sustainability.

Design/methodology/approach – The approach adopted focuses on the pool of talent available and required within the organization and how a philosophy of shared responsibility and commitment can be engendered on behalf of the organization.

Findings – A model is provided outlining how multiple conversations, namely a practice of polylogue, can be effectively pursued.

Practical implications – The benefits of polylogue are outlined in terms of future leader development and staff retention through accommodating a co-operative working environment.

Originality/value – Pursuing multiple “fierce conversations”; through polylogue, but in a constructive manner, is positioned to effectively realize competitive advantage.
