Being a manager doesn’t make you a leader and you can lead without being a manager. According to Cleve Stevens, leadership is a state of mind, not a title to be handed out. Transformational leadership especially, is about engaging employees and motivating them beyond picking up the next paycheck and igniting their passion, loyalty, and motivation. This kind of leadership isn’t easy, it requires change on all levels, at home and in the workplace, but the companies who are bold enough to make these changes see great results.
Cleve is an established authority on the psychology of leadership and the technology of leadership and organizational transformation, Cleve Stevens, Ph.D. has been formally engaged in the field of leadership development for more than 20 years. He has served as an adviser and leadership development consultant to top business leaders and Fortune 500 companies in North America, Europe and Asia.Dr. Stevens has taught leadership and business leadership at the graduate and undergraduate level at the University of Southern California, Beijing University and North Eastern University.
