My preferred leadership style thus far as I am learning of various leaderships would have to be transformational leadership. Transformational leadership is a topic that I will be discussing and exploring in my research. Transformational leadership is a process that changes and transform people (Northouse, 2015). Transformational leadership deals with emotions, values, ethics, standards and long-term goals of individuals as well as organizational. One of the key aspects of transformational leadership is that leaders encourage followers to accomplish and strive for success of more than what is expected of them and reach their individual goals and more. Transformational leadership encourage and believes in visions, missions, and goals beyond individual goal. Transformational leadership incorporates organizational goals and how everyone such as leaders and followers have an important part in the holistic goals of the organization. My Christian worldview incorporates transformational leadership. As the entire church congregation looks to the leaders of the church such as the pastor to guide us towards having a relationship with God. Having a relationship with God is an common goal as well as individual goal. Church pastors encourage us and guides us towards meeting that goal of developing a relationship with God. I feel like Christian leaders should encourage positive transformation in the congregation as well as in the community of developing a relationship with God.
