Leadership Development

Leadership  Development

In 2014, organizations spent $170 billion dollars on business training. Transformational Performance Solutions LLC believes strongly that leadership development goes beyond presentations and that leaders cannot be trained, they need to be developed. Conventional leadership training fails to develop leaders.

TPS delivers the development portion of your training and development efforts. Our team has experienced field leaders, who work alongside your leaders, in actual relevant situations, enabling reflection and delivering results.

Leadership is all about taking ownership and TPS develops ownership spirit within your team.

What is Transformational Leadership?

What is Transformational Leadership?

The sentiment behind the theory of transformational leadership is "Setting an example is not the main means of influencing another, it is the only means." - Albert Einstein.

The term "transformational leadership" was coined in 1978 by James MacGregor Burns. It believes in a leadership style that allows leaders to not only achieve success but to transform the thoughts and actions of individuals, groups and even organizations. This style of leadership requires passion, charisma and the ability to motivate others.

Selecting the Right Leaders

To give a business the best opportunity to win, leaders should be selected for a given role because they have the natural ability to thrive in that role. After they are selected, leaders should have opportunities to grow and develop in ways that will help them better meet the demands of their respective roles.

A leader should focus on the areas that will make them -- and in turn, the enterprise -- most successful. We must not use the ineffective, "one-size-fits-all" training.

Going Beyond the Presentation

We break down what works and what needs improvement to maximize a leader’s performance and aid transformational ability to lead the team to success.

Leadership development embodies self-development at its center. The leader can be a role model for team members to imitate. For example, if the leader exhibits a commitment to receive and use feedback, then so will that leader's team.

Handling the Change

Organizational dry rot takes many shapes. A particularly treacherous form consists of a state of complacency. This love of the status quo is particularly dangerous in industries with a rapid rate of technical change.

To survive, organizations must grow and adapt. They must continually try out and adopt new ideas. This is why you need transformational leaders.
