This six part series will explore the attributes of strong leaders of top corporations in the United States and San Antonio.  This educational program utilizes concepts from the leading business book, Good to Great by author Jim Collins, as well as other exceptional resources focusing on executive leadership development.

The purpose of the Transformational Leadership Development Series (TLD) is to help leaders and future leaders in our community to identify and develop executive level leadership skills such as:

  •  Making productive contributions through talent, knowledge, skills, and good work habits,
  • Contributing individual capabilities to the achievement of group objectives and working effectively with others in a group setting,
  • Organizing people and resources toward the effective and efficient pursuit of predetermined objectives,
  • Being a catalyst to commitment and vigorous pursuit of a clear and compelling vision, stimulating higher performance standards,
  • Building enduring greatness through paradoxical blend of personal humility and professional will.

The Transformational Leadership Development Series will consist of six morning sessions, with breakfast, focusing on specific skills and knowledge exemplified by high level leaders in highly successful companies.  The participants will also be exposed to San Antonio leaders who have excelled in moving their companies forward and who are held in high regard by the San Antonio community for their leadership contributions in and outside the business world.
