Transformational Leadership (TL) is a unique and effective philosophy and leadership style. It can be broken into 4 components: individualized consideration, idealized influence, inspirational motivation and intellectual stimulation. These behaviors occur when a leader challenges, motivates, encourages and stimulates an employee. They take their individual needs into account and assign tasks accordingly. The employee looks up to the leader and wants to emulate their exemplary behaviors. This boosts an employee into growth and development; they are more fulfilled, have more confidence and exhibit greater creativity and innovation. This in turn leads to increased organizational efficiency, performance and productivity.


The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
