Leadership matters.
For people, organizations
and results.

Excellent leadership =
Transactional plus transformational leadership!

A modern, effective leadership culture inspires people in their personal development – for instance, through trust and confidence, reflection and sense of purpose. It thus transforms and enhances employee skills and behaviour over the long term.

High Performance Leadership 2.0 =
Creating followership!

Only when technical and social skills are combined in a manager’s leadership style, will employees be motivated to show initiative, a proactive way of working and loyalty – and a genuine commitment to perform at their best.

Transformational leadership =
The gentle way towards an agile organisation!

As a starting point for agile change in organisations, transformational leadership gently but effectively implements the required values and specific behaviours – without necessarily questioning existing hierarchical systems.

Leadership matters!

Scientifically proven

Current studies show that leadership culture and leadership behaviour have a measurable impact on employee motivation, performance, satisfaction, loyalty and health and ultimately also on the company’s success.

The repertoire of different leadership styles applied ›naturally‹ by a manager is influenced by the underlying leadership personality. The objective is to further expand the individual leadership style portfolio to establish a ›full range of leadership‹.

Current research shows that a manager’s range of active leadership styles has a significant impact on how people experience the working climate in their team, and, as a consequence, it also influences their performance, which is measurable and tangible. This means that there is a direct correlation between the leadership culture and the company’s success.

Transformational Leadership

In the traditional leadership culture, also known as transactional leadership, managers motivate their employees mainly by agreeing targets, assigning tasks and delegating responsibility to them. At the same time, they monitor their employees’ performance, reward them through material and immaterial compensation, and sanction undesired behaviours with criticism. Such a working relationship is characterised by a rational exchange (transaction) of services for compensation.

By contrast, the modern transformational leadership style describes a broadened and enhanced concept of transactional leadership. Transformational managers develop (transform) their employees both on a technical as well as personal level. They are perceived as socially competent role models and highlight the purpose and importance of common goals and ideals. In other words, transformational managers know how to create enthusiasm and optimism, and thus how to foster followership.

Our mission

In order to truly live such transformational leadership, managers need to change their attitude. But they also need to develop a broader range of leadership styles they use actively and appropriately whilst taking into account the individual situation, people involved, context and resources available.

The path to a new world of work

Furthermore, companies that are thinking and acting in terms of classic structures and perspectives are now facing a momentous challenge. They have to be able to respond with even greater agility and flexibility to the rapidly increasing levels of complexity of today’s world (of work). Despite existing examples of best practice, generally it is up to each organisation to find its very own way. And this process usually is accompanied by a serious agony of change. In this regard, excellent leadership, which means a combination of transactional and in particular transformational leadership, serves as a type of preventive therapeutic strategy which can help companies find gentle pathways into the new world of work.
