Transformational Leadership

Created in partnership with: Robert Quinn


In this sprint, participants explore transformational leadership practices such as influencing without authority, seeing deeply into an organization to discover the true sources of transformation, and aligning an organization around the common good. The following daily themes will address what is required of a leader to transform an organization:

  1. Influencing without authority
  2. Leadership begins with seeing deeply
  3. Seeing deeply makes a leader effective
  4. There are four roots of transformational leadership
  5. The root of moral power is the common good

This one-week sprint is part of a 20-week series 100 Day Leaders Journey designed to help you develop the leadership skills already inside you, by regularly dedicating about ten minutes of your valuable time each day to taking charge of your own leadership development. You will be challenged to not only think about what it means to become a more effective leader, but you will be asked to take what you learn every day, put it into practice (or, at least try an experiment or two), and share the results and impact of your actions with the colleagues taking this journey with you.
