Session: The Essential Characteristics of Transformational Leadership
The Essential Characteristics of Transformational Leadership
Early in my career, I believed technical skill development was the best path to success. The zealous pursuit of knowledge left little time for building relationships. As I matured, I discovered that knowledge alone cannot produce the results that lead to sustained culture change. While technical competency is needed to develop a reliability excellence culture, soft skills such as vision, courage, and empathy play a greater role in creating an atmosphere where excellence can take root. To be seen as a leader, your peers must believe you care about them.
Transformational leadership requires the vision of Steve Jobs, the courage of Winston Churchill, the patience of Job, the wisdom of Solomon, and the compassion of Mother Theresa. But do these characteristics exist in one leader? How can someone develop these skills to maximize their influence? Leadership has less to do with position and more to do with character. Everyone, no matter what their position, can develop their soft skills and become a person of influence. Attend this presentation and unleash the reliability leader within you.
