Abstract [en]

Disruptive times often paved the way for great leaders to rise. This thesis intends to reveal organisational leaders behaviour during times of crisis, portraying the course of events and their influence from their and a subordinates perspective. The environmental context of the research is regarded through the application of the organisational ecology approach, emphasising the analogy of the struggle for life in nature and business. This intends to depict the challenges that leaders have to meet in the current times considering environmental changes. The identified behavioural patterns sum up to a certain leadership style with is identified and discussed later to draw conclusions and determine crucial patterns that have a decisive impact on the events. The findings are discussed on the background of the recent leadership theory to drawing conclusions and find analogies with the recent research.
