Transformational leadership is the ability to inspire and motivate employees and stakeholders to create the conditions for successful transformation. 

Transformational leaders create the culture within which outcomes can be achieved, striking a balance between the necessary standards, controls, and guardrails to ensure effective strategic alignment and cross council co-ordination and management of risk, while encouraging collaboration, creativity, and innovation. 

Leaders create (or even better, co-create), a compelling vision that explains both the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ and this is supported by a clear strategy to achieve it. Leaders understand the necessary ingredients for success and enable this through effective teamwork organisation wide and by modelling behaviours to create a positive work environment that supports the achievement of council objectives.
