Transformative Leadership: 

Leading, Caring and Evolving the People You Serve 

Leadership should be handled with care.  Leaders must understand, the more power you have, the more careful and responsive you must be with those you have the privilege of leading, or serving.  Creating caring organizations and communities is the result of thoughtful and connected leadership. It’s not hard to see why caring leaders often seem to instinctively nurture future caring leaders.

I believe every voice can contribute to the success of a goal by providing an avenue for each voice to enter the discussion. Leaders create that space. When we include an entire team’s voice in a process, we can increase the potential for successful sustainable outcomes.
