Transformational Leadership

Transformational leadership is a leadership style that involves articulating and developing a shared vision, fostering a working environment of mutual trust and loyalty. It increases staff motivation, performance and morale. Transformational leadership is distinct from management. It is about creating an environment and organizational culture in which leaders inspire teams to realize that shared vision. This is the type of environment desired for complex projects and programs dealing with dramatic changes and high levels of ambiguity, where teams of experts are required to collaborate and think outside the box.
