“The flexible leadership theory explains how top executives and other  leaders can influence the financial performance of a business  organization. Three key determinants of financial performance are  efficiency, adaptation, and human capital . A wide range of  leadership behaviors, management programs, structural forms, and  external initiatives can be used to influence these performance  determinants.  Management programs and systems are usually  more effective when they are mutually compatible and  appropriate for the situation. Effective performance requires a  cooperative effort by the multiple leaders in an organization,  and they must be flexible and adaptive as the situation  changes .” 4 Yukl, G.
