A Transformational Leadership Movie

Transformational Leadership often involves taking charge of a situation that otherwise would have been failure, or at least failed to achieve its outcomes. When this creates losses in financial business, often times we can become frustrated or disappointed- when it costs lives, that's when it really means business, and human beings have the ability to stand up and take action.

On the subject of war, and fighting for what you believe in, here is a movie worth seeing:

Twelve O'clock High (1949)

A fantastic movie about leadership - a study of transactional, transitional and transformational leadership. Starring Gregory Peck, the movie is set in World War II and revolves around the 918th US Bomber group stationed in England . Although their commander is an efficient leader, he does not have what it takes to lead the team to victory, and they suffer heavy casualties .

Another commander replaces him, and effectively guides and leads the group to become one of the best bomber groups. He pushes his men to the limit and helps them discover their own strengths. This give them a sense of empowerment and pride in themselves.

It is available from Amazon.
Enjoy it, and I look forward to hearing your comments.

Warm regards
