Transformational Leadership

How to lead in an authentic, inspiring and transformative way

A workshop offered by the Human Resources Development

This experiential and inspirational workshop explores the skills required to successfully lead in volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) settings of organizations in and outside of academia.

Transformational leadership in academia is especially positively related to job satisfaction, trust in the team, trust in the leader and the scientific performance of the team (Braun et al., 2013).
