Transformative Leadership was developed as a Bahá’í inspired academic program for social action. It focuses on how we can all exercise leadership and a positive influence in the groups, teams and organizations to which we belong, no matter what role or position we have. All groups have three primary functions: 1) accomplishing the goals and objectives for which they were created, 2) strengthening unity within the group, since “no power can exist except through unity” and 3) helping one another to develop capabilities. By contributing to any of these three group functions, we are exercising leadership. Experience in more than 40 countries, using this program in the fields of education, public health, youth leadership and others, has shown the impact that it can have on participants of many different cultures and ages.
