Welcome to our learning community
Our values of educational sovereignty, social responsibility, reachable education, and collegial self-governance are ingrained in hard work and remain our backbone for organizational success. The study of leadership is peculiar and indistinguishable from our success as leaders or followers.
Saddled with hundreds of definitions, with more being created as I write, most leadership gurus have attested that “leadership” is the most studied but least understood discipline in our learning core curriculum. There has to be a reason why, with all the attention accorded to the study of leadership and management, organizational challenges still overwhelm accomplishments.
It is my pleasure, therefore, to welcome you to the American Journal of Transformational Leadership (AJTL). Whether you are just reading through, browsing our domain, or a part of an incredible team of our learning community, I applaud your interest and encourage you to share your experience with others.
AJTL is a dynamic and vibrant global learning community borne out of necessity, to convey the meaning and values of leadership, and facilitate an environment to breed transformational leaders of today for tomorrow’s success. This mission defines our core objective to partner and collaborate with relevant experts in the field to facilitate forums on practice of effective leadership.
Our values of educational sovereignty, social responsibility, reachable education, and collegial self-governance are ingrained in hard work and remain our backbone for organizational success. The study of leadership is peculiar and indistinguishable from our success as leaders or followers. AJTL has excelled as an academic forum for thoughts on leadership and management replicating these trends of modern leadership – an unbroken interaction of three indispensable elements: the leaders, the led, and the relevant situation. General George Patton was therefore right in his avowal that one can either lead, follow, or get out of the way. Each of these three elements interact to inspire leadership effectiveness.
Without more to add, it is once again my pleasure to invite you to be a part of our learning community – our mission to share the definition and values leadership in the most scholarly tradition.
