"Profiel fo a tansfor- mational leadership programme"

This paper  explores the impact of a transformational leadership development program on the lives of its participants after a one year interval. It addresses three fundamental questions: (1) What does a transformational leadership program transform? (2) How does the change process occur? (3) How are behavioural changes maintained over time? It also presents the results of an exploratory longitudinal outcome study of a leadership development program for senior executives.
