In a search for an understanding of the qualities possessed by extraordinary leaders, two Americans, Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner interviewed over 60,000 leaders and team members.From this they distilled the five key attributes that enabled these leaders to achieve amazing results in a wide range of situations.
Their work, detailed in a book "The Leadership Challenge" has been tested by extensive research in the UK and found to be held true both here and in Europe.The five key characteristics identified by this work have become known as the Transformational Leadership model because such leaders can transform their teams commitment to the organisation, their expectations and abilities, and their willingness to take risks.
Our Transformational Leadership training workshop encourages delegates to find these characteristics within themselves, and to develop practical ways to incorporate them in to their own particular management style.
We often find that particularly progressive organisations are interested in this course, and that they may have unique challenges or tasks in mind.To this end we would seek to work closely with clients to ensure we have a thorough understanding of the required outcomes, and tailor the content according to organisational needs.
