COMPARING AGILE LEADERSHIP WITH BIOMIMICRY-BASED GRAY WOLF: PROPOSING A NEW MODEL

Biomimicry is a modern interdisciplinary approach that motivates leaders by nature to use its applications. Leadership is not only a subject of study in biology but also in all social sciences. This research focuses on understanding the mechanism behind the coordinated behaviour observed in mobile animal groups in order to assess the impact of leadership models in biology and sociology on group behaviours. In this context, this study aims to reveal the common grounds and to establish bridges between agile leadership and biomimicry by using a new model on grey wolves. The research was done by qualitative analysis method including current literature. The findings reveal that there is a strong relationship between characteristics and qualities agile leadership and of wolves. It is resulted that natural and biological cycles inspire on the leadership models. Understanding this differential impact and the ability of leadership is the key to appreciate the function of group organizations in collective animal systems.

ÇEVİK LİDERLİĞİN BİYOMİMİKRİ TABANLI GRİ KURT İLE KARŞILAŞTIRILMASI: YENİ BİR MODEL ÖNERİSİ

Biyomimikri, liderleri, doğası gereği uygulamalarını kullanmaya motive eden modern bir disiplinlerarası yaklaşımdır. Liderlik sadece biyolojide değil, tüm sosyal bilimlerde de bir çalışma konusudur. Bu araştırma, biyoloji ve sosyolojideki liderlik modellerinin grup davranışları üzerindeki etkisini değerlendirmek için mobil hayvan gruplarında gözlemlenen koordineli davranışın arkasındaki mekanizmayı anlamaya odaklanmaktadır. Bu bağlamda bu çalışmanın amacı, gri kurtlar üzerinde yeni bir model kullanarak ortak temelleri ortaya çıkarmak ve çevik liderlik ile biyomimikri arasında köprüler kurmaktır. Araştırma, güncel literatürü içeren nitel analiz yöntemi ile yapılmıştır. Bulgular, kurtların özellikleri ve nitelikleri ile çevik liderlik arasında güçlü bir ilişki olduğunu ortaya koymaktadır. Doğal ve biyolojik döngülerin liderlik modellerine ilham verdiği sonucuna varılmıştır. Bu farklı etkiyi ve liderlik yeteneğini anlamak, grup organizasyonlarının kolektif hayvan sistemlerindeki işlevini takdir etmenin anahtarıdır.
