What is the Transformational Leadership Network (TLN)?

The world's only peer network focused on developing leaders that effectively enable their teams to Get Sh*t Done.

Innovation. It’s the word of our times. The solution to all problems. The answer to every interview question. And it’s the only way to create value on Wall Street. Yet very few people who use the word have any idea what it takes to innovate.

By its very nature, innovation is about change. No one hires a leader, kicks off a project, or builds a product team because they want their organization to be the same in six months or a year. You can't innovate while maintaining the status quo.

Leadership is fundamentally about change. A leader takes their organization on a journey. They help team members create their own roadmaps to a shared goal, leverage the collective IQ and enable their teams to drive transformation change.

Great leaders don't wing it, they prepare and practice. No one wakes up in the transformative leadership zone. It is a long, hard, and sometimes painful journey. But it doesn’t have to be.

The Transformational Leadership Network exists to help people unlock their potential as leaders. Apply to join the movement that is working to elevate the practices of leadership, teamwork, and humanity in the workplace to maximize human potential and accelerate innovation.
