Transformational leaders are not pillars of power, but they are powerful beings. While managers are often transactional agents, successful leaders achieve great results with their ability to transform through the power of inspiring and motivating others around them. Showcasing the real experiences of greater Boston’s most talented leaders, this session will share their unique journeys around how they transformed their businesses, teams and bottom line — and the impact that has had on their careers, organizations and lives. Using their firsthand experiences, we will explore how integrity, humility, transparency, flexibility and collaboration were critical attributes to becoming a transformational leader. With a blend of practical advice and inspiration, attendees will walk away with an understanding of what steps you can take to drive transformation in your professional and personal lives.
