Leadership continuous improvement
knowing and understanding a theory does not imply that a person is capable of using it to lead his team using it. Moreover, such a skill requires development by understanding the current capabilities, self assessing frequently and reflecting on the areas of improvement. in transformational leadership the four components are measurable based on the outcomes apparent on the followers which can be used as an input for self assessment and continuous improvement.
Only by understanding the current performance a person can start to improve as it will help to shed the light on improvement areas that people are not aware of. Morover, individualized consideration can give the leader a chance to understand his current performance as a leader is as good as his followers perception of him/her.
By assessing my self every month on my leadership skills i can understand how can i improve.I can assess my self against transformational leadership measurable outcomes that are widely available in the literature. As a leader this will give me an indication as what performance should i expect back from my followers. I can extend it to control the team performance through my leadership skills after developing sufficient capabilities to do so.
