Research literature on leadership development consistently highlights interpersonal skills as an essential skill of an effective leader.
A range of different leadership theories have been developed over years that view leadership through a variety of lenses.
Transformational Leadership is one theory which has been credited for bringing about positive change in organisations.
James MacGregor Burns a Pulitzer Prize-winning political historian and highly regarded author in Transformational Leadership provides the notion “That people can be lifted into their better selves is the secret of transforming leadership and the moral and practical theme of this work”.
Building leadership capability in its primary form requires a high level of self-awareness, a preparedness to engage in self-reflection and the motivation for reinvention. This provides the foundation for knowledge creation and leadership style calibration.
“The personal capabilities of effective transformational leaders revolve around three areas: the ability to construct a compelling organizational vision; an intellectually and emotionally mature understanding of power and its positive use, not merely its acquisition; and, self-confidence as manifested in the empowerment, inspiration, and motivation of others” – Marshall Sashkin Professor Emeritus of Human Resource Development and renown leadership author.
