Don’t get me wrong – leading for change and inspiring people to act in alignment with their goals AND the company purpose is the stuff dreams are made of. Effective transformational leadership is art. It’s poetry. It’s hard to do and good for everyone when it’s done well.
However, I don’t know about you but I’m suffering from a little bit of leadership best practices fatigue. There are so many articles, so much information, so many little things we can do to be better leaders.
What does that actually mean? What EXACTLY are we talking about when we’re talking about upping our transformational leadership game?
And how do you implement all of those tips that are constantly barraging your inbox and social media networks?
Allow me to introduce some academics to set the scene.
