Who Should Participate

Whether you are leading a large team, a single employee or are a member of a team, the concepts learned from this webcast will transform your everyday interactions, both professionally and personally.


Today's fast-paced business world requires all of us to accomplish a myriad list of transactions, to-do lists and the get-to-the-end outcomes. But to truly inspire lasting positive change, we need to embrace a culture of transformational leadership. Transformational leaders are energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about their work. They lead by encouraging evolutionary outcomes instead of just checking off the boxes. The principles of transformational leadership impact a team's ability and enthusiasm, as well as the organization's productivity and engagement.

In this interactive webcast, you will:

  • Understand the differences between transformational and transactional leadership, when and how to use each, and how to effectively lead others with a harmonizing blend of the two;
  • Learn about the 4 I's of transformational leaders;
  • Take a brief survey to find out where you fall on the Transactional/Transformational Leadership scale;
  • Realize people are much more than what they accomplish via their day-to-day transactions, instead, there is an underlying motivational drive that inspires us; and
  • Learn how to focus on team members' strengths and core values, as well as what their individual presence brings to the broader team setting.
