What is transformational leadership? When an organization or department is led by a transformational leader, the energy and enthusiasm are palpable. Those working under the leader have a sense of purpose, can clearly articulate the leader's vision and are both inspired and motivated to achieve it. Transformational leaders are self-aware, and they succeed by tapping into the strengths of others, ensuring individual growth and success, and therefore the success of the organization. In this unique, personalized and 100% online leadership program, you will be supported, challenged and motivated by your instructor-role models and your cohort: an intimate group of fellow leader-students with whom you will progress through the program. You'll forge long-lasting bonds and gain life-changing awareness of yourself, along with leadership knowledge and skills that will yield lasting results.
