About this paper

Sometimes we attribute the “secret sauce” of success to technology or product, but what if a truly strategic advantage originated from the team or organization’s leadership style?

The characteristics and attributes of “transformational leadership” have been shown to do just that.

Organizations and teams with transformational leaders obtain better business results.

Transformational leadership is a predictive factor in software delivery and organizational performance, with high-performing teams having leaders with the strongest transformational leadership traits.

Strong transformational leaders also create a good work climate and culture for their teams, with their employees reporting the highest employee Net Promoter Scores.

This paper will help leaders identify behaviors, attributes, and areas for improvement.
