A key function of leadership is to facilitate change that acknowledges the present and embraces the future. Behn (as cited by Van Wart, 2013, p. 558) offers a reminder that environments within organizations are constantly changing, meaning the roles of their leaders must also adjust to ensure changes will be instituted as they become necessary.
