Transformational Leadership in practise

You are an experienced executive and know how to manage your daily business. However, from time to time you come across situations where you feel that you are not making any progress with your current tool box. You have realized that as an executive you could have a big influence by setting an example.

In reality, things look very different:

Company values exist, but nobody lives them. They have been set by the top management.

A vision? Maybe, not really…, and leadership guidelines – yes, on paper.

Every man for himself. The employees in the company show good individual performances. Unfortunately, decisions are often made from the “top”. They are not understood at the lower levels or are not useful from the view of daily business. Decisions are taken too slowly.

In this training you learn how to create a principle-oriented, sustainable, and long term development of the organisation and your employees. You also learn how company values will become part of the everyday work life and how the managers of the organisation are able to develop the culture of the company in a positive way.

  • Translating and living company values in everyday work life
  • Perceiving people as individual personalities and therefore deploying them at the right positions
  • Recognizing the difference between transformational and transactional leadership and thereupon analysing your own leadership behaviour accordingly
  • Observing your own character, and identifying and evaluating areas of conflict
  • Phrasing leadership principles and integrating then into the executives' work life
  • Becomming truly aware of your own leadership role, enabling you to create a place where employees are confident to take on responsibilities. Thus they can achieve top performances with the help of “performance agreements” instead of employee goals
