Building Transformative Organizations

It would seem that success in building transformative organizations has more to do with people than traditional procedures. Jesus broke all the stereotypes by seeking out his followers and building a transformational relationship with them. This was the key to our Lords successful discipleship. This makes sense when you consider the fact that how we treat people is a key concept of transformational leadership. In his book Leadership and Performance Beyond Expectation, B. M. Bass indicates that a transformational leader seeks to transform an organization by transforming the people who operate the organization. Working for a transformational leader can be a wonderful and uplifting experience. They feel they are a vital and appreciated part of productivity. Transformational leadership starts with the development of a vision, a view of the future that will excite and motivate followers because they see themselves as a part. This understanding would tend to suggest that transformational leadership is conducive to building transformative organizations.
