Seven Transformations of Leadership.
Successful leaders know that they need to develop their leadership skills on an ongoing basis – this helps them handle increasingly challenging situations.
However, many leaders plateau at a particular skill level, meaning that their career progression falters.
So, how can you avoid plateauing, and, so, realize your full potential?
Researchers David Rooke and William Torbert argue that there are seven stages that leaders go through, and, that by learning new skills, you can successfully move from one stage to the next.
In this article, we'll look at these seven leadership transformations, and we'll discuss how you can move through each stage.
