Transformational leaders require skills around engaging, researching (outside the square), resilience, managing and developing diversity and team, synthesising, conceptualising, coaching and coherence building.
Transforming leaders draw their security from their own ability to change, rather than their position in the organisation. They lead from the front with vision and authenticity, and they work with staff by collaborating as a team. This is more productive than the earlier directive and authoritarian models of leadership.
Transformational leaders are powerful. Their power comes from personal and professional qualities such as authenticity, integrity and openness, rather than from their position (institutional power).
Organisations are systems. Relationships weld the organisation together. The stronger the weld, the more durable, sustainable and flexible the organisation. Transforming culture rather than structural or superficial change, leads to deep and resilient change.
The goal of transforming leaders is flexible responsive organisations, led by people who can read the signs; respond with coherence and who maximise the potential of the group by thinking beyond the square.
In understanding this mind shift, we will not only help you conceptualise your organisational essence but also, support you whilst new skills and processes are internalised by leaders so that they become your new cultural norm.
