We wrap up our discussion with an interview of Karl Brummer SVP at Messiah Lifeways. Karl shares his thoughts on the effect transformational leadership can have on employee motivation, engagement, empowerment and conflict resolution.
In this episode, we round out our discussion by focusing on the long-term focus and benefits of transformational leadership. Transformational leadership, unlike its transactional counterpart, is not just a means to an end. It’s an opportunity to improve processes, drive change, and alter the status quo.
We continue our discussion on the shift from transactional to transformational leadership. In this episode, we look at the impact a transformational mindset can have on communication. Transformational leaders are focused, intentional and curious.
In this digital age, much of our interaction is very short, informal, and oftentimes driven from the standpoint of satisfying an immediate need. Such interaction could be described as transactional. We see this in leadership as well; shorter, one-sided interactions designed to provide instruction, a quick update, or to address a pressing business need.
Jim and John wrap up the series on Change Management with an interview of Sara Kennedy, VP of Associate Experience at Members 1st Federal Credit Union. Sara discusses her role as a change champion, as well as the importance of things like communication and building trust.
In the third episode, the guys continue the discussion on change management by looking at some strategies leaders can take to be more successful in executing change and limiting employee resistance such as creating a sense of urgency and asking questions.
Our initial episode centers on some of the underlying principles of Servant Leadership, such as engagement, care, and listening. Jim and John compare these principles to those associated with other leadership styles and work to dispel some of the myths of Servant Leadership.
