Max DePree. Leadership is an Art.

transformative leadership
Transformative Leadership

Transformative leadership occurs when one or more people engage with others in such a way that leaders and followers raise one another to higher levels of motivations and morality.

Burns. Transformative Leadership

leadership as service
Leadership as Service

Leadership begins with the natural feeling that one wants to serve, to serve first. Then, conscious choice brings one to aspire to lead. The difference manifests itself in the care taken by the servant – first to make sure that other people’s highest-priority needs are being served. The best test is: Do those served grow as persons; do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, or more likely to become servants themselves?

Bob Greenleaf. Servant Leadership.
