Leadership That Transforms | NAWBO
February 2018 -NAWBO MN President's Message

Leadership that Transforms
At its most successful, leadership is about 
transformation. Transformational leadership 
disrupts the status quo and creates positive change in individuals and organizations. Transformational leaders inspire and motivate teams through shared purpose. They bring out the best in others through inclusive problem-solving, innovation and ultimately, developing followers into leaders.
There are three important NAWBO MN announcements as we grow together as leaders that transform:
