Transformational Leadership overview
Transformational Leadership is a process of influencing in which leaders change their associates’ awareness of what is important and move them to see themselves and the opportunities and challenges of their environment in a new way. It will inspire your followers to transcend their own self interest for a collective higher purpose, mission or vision.
Transformational Leadership occurs when one or more persons engage with others, so leaders and followers raise one another to higher levels of motivation and morality.
Consequently, Transformational Leadership Training results in the achievement of increased levels of performance amongst followers than previously thought possible.
The Transformational Leadership Training also, focuses heavily on the benefits of Emotional Intelligence.
Emotional Intelligence is concerned with achieving one’s goals through the ability to manage one’s own feelings and emotions in order to be sensitive to and influence other key people. Emotional Intelligence also helps to balance one’s motives and drives with conscientious and ethical behaviour.
How does the training work?
In conjunction with our partners in California, Mind Garden™, the leaders will undergo an initial 360 degree evaluation. Then, over a series of sessions (client dependent), leaders will establish what key behavioural traits they are currently exhibiting on the Transformational Leadership model and understand how to be able to improve in the areas required. Via meetings with leaders a view is undertaken of the management model and key behavioural traits and a plan is pulled together for leaders to be able to implement the new behaviours. Then, after an agreed period, a further 360 degree evaluation takes place and tangible improvements in one’s skills are reviewed.
Our leadership training is workshop based and completed over a 3-12 month period. During the training, other areas focused on include:
- Improvement of Emotional Intelligence
- Managing managers
- Creating a culture
- Business communications
