Moving into the Future: the Power of Transformational Leadership
Do you know the difference between transactional leadership and transformational leadership and why it makes a difference in EVERY industry? As the saying goes; “the only constant is change,” and if it’s important for you and your organization to move into the future with positive growth and a thriving staff, you will want to understand how to support this change. This includes appreciating leaders with strength of vision and personality who can inspire followers to change expectations, perceptions, and motivations to work towards common goals. Additionally, that change happens when there is an increase in the leader’s expectation of the follower’s performance which will result in overall increased performance.
Purposed Based Recognition; Recognizing and Rewarding Your Staff
Did you know that turnover is a 5 trillion dollar drain on the US economy? How does turnover affect your bottom line? By implementing a “Purposed Based Recognition” program you will reduce turnover, you will gain buy-in of your employees and you will create an environment of support and enthusiasm. Lori will help you identify goals and responsibilities of leadership for everyone in an intentional program that will retain your most important asset; your employees.
