The real genius of transformational leadership

The real genius of transformational leadership
In any industry, there is a variety of organizations, each with its own distinct structure, culture, and leadership ethos. In many of these organizations there’s a prescribed way to be a leader, and everyone must fall in line, whether it’s aligned with who they truly are or not.  In other companies, leaders may be left to bring their own personal style – or let’s face it, lack of style – to the role. Organizations which insist on leadership being portrayed in one established way are as unlikely to reach the peak of their industry as those which adopt a laissez faire approach, leaving it up to each individual. In fact, there’s about 100 years of research on leadership to pore over, if you’ve got a spare afternoon and a pot of strong coffee to hand. But let us break it down for you: the days of didactic and autocratic leadership are long gone. We’re now in the age of leaders as real people, where personality, preference and authenticity are prized – as long as they’re blended with an ability to maintain task focus and a deliver results for the business. That’s because the best leaders, and leadership teams, are human, with all the jumble of attitudes and character traits that that implies.
