Abstract

In times of change, leaders must find organic methods of engaging, inspiring, and connecting to the fundamental motivators for continued growth. Major challenges facing leaders today are not technical but transformational, based more on modifying situations than fixing them. From adjuncts to deans, participants in our group discussed various strategies and supportive methodologies for developing transformative leadership. We concluded that transformation must involve a shift of attention from goals and outcomes to means and processes. Reverence for each moment that supports the pedagogical mission is needed when the demands are great and the resources are small.
