Details & Time Frame
Understanding Transformational Leadership to Identify Leadership Potential
Talent Acquisition professionals go to great lengths to understand and articulate how to identify and ensure their organization has quality leaders. Doing this well requires a strong theory of leadership as a “backbone” to assist in identifying individuals with leadership potential. The theory of Transformational Leadership (TL) has been THE theory to understanding what it means to be a quality leader in the scientific literature for many years.

Decades of research on TL articulates the necessary characteristics of a quality leader – idealized influence, intellectual stimulation, individualized consideration, and inspirational motivation. These characteristics include qualities such as charisma, the ability to motivate others, articulate goals of the future, and establish caring relationships, just to name a few. But how do we put this theory into practice?

This session will articulate and define TL in an attempt to create an understanding as applied to practitioners, while exploring applications on how to identify leadership potential through personality and core work values. Examples will include how to map key components of TL onto personality and values to identify characteristics of each of the four primary elements of TL and how to leverage that understanding through the application of assessment technology.

Ultimately, assessment technology can be applied within the talent acquisition process to account for one way of identifying individuals with leadership potential, while providing a basis to evaluate key strengths and deficiencies of TL. By understanding strengths and deficiencies we can predict where an individual will perform well and where they may need leadership development!
