Leadership buzzword takes off with US Presidential candidates

Although the term "Transformational leadership" has been around for close on 30 years, US Presidential candidates seem to have caught onto what their people want. Transformational change. But is it really acheiveable.

Presidential historian James MacGregor Burns, who was intrumental in bringing Transformational Leadership into clear focus, has his doubts. He says "it's hard for them to realize that you don't just suddenly turn yourself into a transforming leader."

Welcome

Hello,

Welcome to the Transformational Leadership Blog.

www.transformationalleaderhsip.net focuses the subject of Transformational Leadership and serves as a platform to explore the dynamics of personal, organisational & global change.The driving principal that underpins this is as Ghandi said,

"Be the change you want to see in the world".

www.transformationalleaderhsip.net is a place of change, learning & support. The path ahead has many challenges, and those of you that choose to be a change agent in your world, no doubt could do with some encouragement along the way. I want to be part of a community of people that are committed to integrity, honesty and continuous, sustainable and achievable change.

Transformational Leadership consists of two concepts:
- Transformation - Radical (to the root) Change

- Leadership - having a clear vision and communicating it. To foster an environment that encourages risk taking and empowerment, so allowing other leaders to emerge.

I invite you to share openly about which topics you would like to see addressed, so that we may all become better Transformational Leaders.

To our ongoing transformation & success,

Richard
