Transformational leadership is the highest and most effective form of leading in most organizations
Houston (PRWEB) December 20, 2006
Birkman International, a personality assessment firm that offers leadership development best practices to HR professionals, has released its latest article, "Transformational Leadership in Business: A Framework for Best Practice in Executive Coaching". This report explores the concept of transformational leadership and strategies to successfully implement an executive training program to encourage transformational, rather than transactional, leadership in organizations.
The article, "Transformational Leadership in Business: A Framework for Best Practice in Executive Coaching", is designed to offer those responsible for executive coaching and leadership development a brief definition of transformational leadership and the executive requirements in the modern marketplace. The report also includes insight from Dr. Larry G. Lee, Senior Director of Research and Development for Birkman International, on the execution of a leadership program and the application of organizational development strategies.
"Transformational leadership is the highest and most effective form of leading in most organizations," Lee said. "In a transformational leader, power and authority are centered in an ethical, rational leader who commands both trust and respect."
Many companies are challenged to create a repeatable process for cultivating leaders in-house and ensuring they are going to be a positive force in their own company. Companies are re-evaluating their own internal talent and putting leadership programs in place that emphasize the development of transformational leadership skills in order to identify and support leaders who promote change and workforce cohesiveness in an ethical manner. The article supports the argument that employee motivation is largely dependent on transformational leaders.
The report, "Transformational Leadership in Business: A Framework for Best Practice in Executive Coaching", lends insight to those companies interested in leadership development. One of the recommendations, to vigilantly search for leadership talent throughout the firm, can be accomplished by utilizing the Birkman Method®, the industry-leading business tool that facilitates individual growth, corporate change and organizational effectiveness.
