Event Details

Transformational leadership is a relatively new and evolving model of leadership in which leaders empower and develop themselves, their followers, and their organization to achieve extraordinary outcomes while generating high levels of satisfaction and commitment.

The traditional model of leadership in organizations has been transactional leadership, which seeks to achieve an outcome through an exchange of value (exchanging work for money, for example). This more common, current management paradigm—effective in many ways—is insufficient to respond to current global challenges. Transformational leadership seeks to go further, satisfying deeper hungers and responding to higher missions and purposes within the individual—often changing the status quo in the process.

Transformational leadership involves a never ending process of growth and development, in which people are continually challenged and expected to take the next step towards realization of their potential. This produces a vibrant and fulfilling culture that empowers individuals to take deep responsibility for themselves, their results, and their careers.

Registrants will be provided an assignment to do prior to the workshop.
