The leaders in an organization manage the inter-locking  processes  within an organization set in a backdrop of a rapidly changing environment.  TalkShop Leadership Coach and John Maxwell Certified Trainer Dr. Sheila Viesca points out, “Today’s leaders face the challenge of ushering in the transformation required of an organization to stay current and responsive to changing times.”

She adds, “Leaders need to focus on developing transformational leadership skills that will enable them to steer the organization to higher productivity and intentional excellence amidst great uncertainty.”
Here are the 10 Transformational Leadership Qualities shared by TalkShop, the leading consultancy and training facility for industry leaders who want to be transformational:

1)  Transformational leadership is rooted in communication as a means of realizing the organization’s vision, mission and goals.  This requires an exceptional ability to listen with their heart and communicate their ideas in relevant and inspiring words. Communication is a core competency for transformational leadership.
2)  Transformational leaders have a clear vision which sets the strong foundation in how they relate with the individuals on their team and create the synergy for the entire organization. They motivate and inspire people to become part of the vision, as they guide the organization in the direction that supports it.


3)  Transformational leaders share and understand the collective consciousness of the entire organization.  They move beyond day to day functions, operate and make decisions at a level that is focused on creating change in people and culture that leads to innovation and growth.
4) Transformational leaders inspire a sense of commitment and purpose.

They have the ability to motivate others to rise to the occasion by going beyond formal acknowledgement of a job well done and treating each member of the team as a valued individual.  They inspire and know the rightful place of compassion in what they do.


5)  Transformational leaders have the ability to craft a plan that elicits the desired actions from everyone on the team.  They create actionable steps that can be easily understood and executed by everyone in the organization. They develop a platform where front liners are encouraged to ask questions, and provide feedback.  They solicit inputs from the different ranks in the organization to ensure that situations are efficiently evaluated,   to support decisions that lead to growth and to ascertain that operations remain in alignment with the organization’s vision.


6)  Transformational leaders have the ability to make strategic decisions and take calculated risks. Because transformational leaders are clearly focused on the values, vision, objectives, and goals of the organization, they have the courage to make difficult decisions based on an ethical point of view, not solely on economic terms. They hone their skill and instinct and use the inputs of their team members to arrive at an informed decision.


7)  Transformational leaders understand the collective strength of a team and the value of a culture that is open to novel ideas from all levels.  They actively solicit these ideas and insights across the organization and utilize them in making decisions and exploring opportunities for growth.


8) Transformational leaders are adaptable and proactive.  They adapt to new situations and seek creative ways to respond to a dynamic environment. They are ever alert and sensitive to whatever elements that may affect the organization in a significant way.


9)  Transformational leaders are mindful of their egos and the position of power they hold. In being so, they are able to put the interest of the organization before their own personal gain.  This enables them to elicit the best performance from everyone.


10)  Transformational  leaders do what they love. Their values are aligned and shared  by the organization they lead.  They are highly and internally motivated and they use this motivation to lead the organization in the right direction.
