Challenges in the workplace today affect both the leaders and followers in organizations. This exploratory, qualitative study uses content analysis to explore the perceptions administrative leaders, working in public, non-profit institutions of higher education, have regarding the challenges facing the workplace today. This study also explored whether the theories of SuperLeadership and self-leadership may be applied in academic settings to address workplace challenges. All the administrator leaders expressed an understanding of the challenges facing their workplace today. These administrator leaders identified workplace challenges mostly driven by change. After conducting in-depth interviews with eleven administrator leaders, four themes of change emerged: (1) ability to change, (2) skill change, (3) technological change, and (4) ideological change. It appeared the administrator leaders in this study could benefit from an organizational approach, as described by SuperLeadership and self-leadership, to support change initiatives and meet workplace challenges. Implications for addressing current challenges in the workplace and recommendations for future research are discussed.
