Transformational Leadership: Integrity matters

Hi Transformational Leader

Do you what to develop the personal power to lead change in yourself and others?
Do you want what you do to be aligned with who you are?
Do you want to create unshakable trust with people in your life and business?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, here is the next one....

How is your integrity?
Now that may be a bold question to ask, yet it is a very powerful one, if your are willing to answer it.

Keeping your integrity makes a huge difference when it comes to generating personal power, aligning your purpose, and creating trust. As you probably well know, it takes a while for trust to be created, and sometimes a small event to make it breakdown.

Integrity may have different meanings for different people. One way of describing it could be - "Doing what you say you will". This could be as simple as making your bed, or taking your kid to the movies when you said you would. It could be going to the gym, or something as simple as making a followup call when you said you would. Being on time is another way of keeping your integrity.

You see, your mind is constantly watching you, to see if you will keep your word. If you do, it becomes your most powerful supporter. On the other hand, if you beep on breaking your word, your mind may not support you in creating the change you want to see in your life and business.

In Transformational Leadership, we have an important task ahead of us. We have a responsibility to lead the change, by first leading our own change. As Ghandi said "Be The Change You Want To See In The World".

To your ongoing transformation and leadership development

Managing Change at Work Conference

The Psychology of Leadership,
Managing Change at Work Conference
5 December 2007
London

Change is challenging. It requires leaders who are willing and able to learn and adapt. And for when change really bites, today’s leaders need to demonstrate a consistent set of values and behaviours in order to create continuity and a foundation of trust

Transformational leadership is about taking people beyond what they would normally achieve by motivating and inspiring them to exceed their goals. But for leaders, this is about much more than simply being charismatic or ‘leading with a vision’.

Featuring new research and the practical leadership lessons learnt from the Clipper Round the World Yacht race 2005-2006, this seminar will identify how leaders can successfully navigate through challenges to transform individual and team performance.

Led by:
Emma Soane
Reader, Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Kingston Business School

Dr Emma Stanton
Clipper Round the World Crew Member
Specialist Registrar in Psychiatry, South London and Maudsley NHS Trust

Jamaica considers Transformational Leadership

Recently the Jamaican Constabulary Force has considered using Transformational Leadership as a way to transform the quality and effectiveness of their forces. It seems that they are calling for change, yet have not reached the levels of transformation they are seeking.

In a land where violent crime is high, it seems that this is only the start of a long term change that is required to address a serious the serious social issues of murders and shootings.
The leading political parties have placed a great great reliance on the police to prevent and control crime.

For more detail on the full story, see below.

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
