Today’s managers must deal with globalization of markets, increasing intensity of competition, rapid technological changes, a shift from an industrial economy to a knowledge, human capital and information based economy, demographic changes, environmental challenges, changing value systems and consumer preferences, whereby creativity and innovation is necessary for survival organizations. On the other hand, organizations and leaders should be tried to create an institutional framework in which creativity and innovation will be accepted as basic cultural norms in the midst of technological and other changes. This brings us to the increased importance of self-leadership.
