This article outlines the four main qualities of a successful transformational leader. Here's an interesting excerpt:
"Research evidence clearly shows that groups led by transformational leaders have higher levels of performance and satisfaction than groups led by other types of leaders. Why? Because transformational leaders hold positive expectations for followers, believing that they can do their best. As a result, they inspire, empower, and stimulate followers to exceed normal levels of performance."
This fall, Boxer Advisors is launching the Transformational Leadership Institute, a collaborative learning community for C-level executives. It will consist of 12 to 20 DC-based executives of large corporations or federal agencies who are looking to enhance their leadership skills, drive innovation, and address their critical organizational objectives.
We are currently taking nominations for Transformational Leadership Institute members. I suspect that many members of this group may be or may know the ideal candidate. To nominate a colleague or yourself, or receive more information on the faculty, benefits, and commitment, contact [email protected]
I also invite your feedback on this group and the topic of transformational leadership in general.
