With conscious effort, motivation, and reinforcement, we believe that leaders can be made.  The 4R Model is a roadmap for how leadership can be consciously developed and practiced through Relationships, Roles, Responsibilities and Results.  The four foundational elements that leaders must get clear and create commitment around in order to lead and manage their teams. The 4R model was developed by Dr. Mark W. McCloskey to depict “the interplay of critical variables in the process of transformational leadership.”  

Different than Transactional Leadership, Transformational Leadership is necessary when addressing uncertain and nuanced leadership circumstances and dilemmas. Transformational leaders gain the trust of their followers and stakeholders based on shared interest in the future of the organization.  They create and communicate a unifying vision and mission for a better future while empowering and engaging followers in the attainment of that vision.

Transformational leaders do more than just get the job done. They gain trust, create alignment, and engage followers in meaningful work. If you want lasting results, foster collaborative relationships with clear and agreed to roles and responsibilities.
