The first part of the PDC will focus on the concepts, principles, and skill sets for transformational leadership (TFL). Participants will do two assessments – a self-assessment and an organizational assessment to see where they come out on the TFL scale. The second part of the PDC will focus on the application of TFL to achieve functional excellence in H&S. Examples from the journey of one company that transitioned from a primarily transactional management strategy to one that embraced transformational leadership skills will be highlighted.
