Bass’ 'Transformational Leadership Theory' is defined as the impact that leaders have on others as they garner trust, respect, and admiration from them. The 4 different components of Transformational Leadership Bass suggests are :
Strategic alignment occurs when the business strategy of an organisation is aligned with the culture, processes and infrastructure.
These four dominant alignment perspectives have been adapted and integrated with MBTI to use for the analytic understanding of how business and their people can be aligned.
The "strategic fit" at an organizational level can only occur when three of the four domains are in alignment. The implication is that change cannot happen in one domain without impacting at least two other domains.
We work with organisations to understand how they can achieve their outcomes. We use MBTI as a diagnostic tool to help align the people and business strategies of the organisation, and to assist in changes needed in the organisational culture and internal business processes.
