Working through people is the foundation of this form of leadership. Respect for the individual and for whom they are personally. Building a strong vision and continually selling that vision to participants is one of the key roles the Transformation Leader plays. And it is a role that is fundamental to the organic make-up of the Transformational Leader. The charisma and enthusiasm that the leader shows is the inspiration to those who follow. It is the encouragement that followers need when days are dark and the going gets tough. It’s the light at the end of the tunnel when there is no end in sight.
The leader raises the emotional energy in the group by their level of enthusiasm and support. Those who will follow need a strong vision, a strong encouragement and strong affirmations along the way. If there are little signs of success along the way, then the belief systems for those who follow will be strengthened.
