iHub By Jessica Colaco / April 6, 2010
What kind of leader do you want to be?
In my earlier post I wrote about open innovation. Today, I would like to focus on leadership, change and culture.
No matter who we are or what we do, we are all leaders in some way. However, what kind of leader are you – A Transactional or transformational leader?
A transactional leader is content with his/her current situation and has a short-term vision and perceives little need for change.
A transformational leader on the other hand is a “tidal wave”. He/she is very open to change and a change-maker!
iHub is an open place for the tech community where we encourage:
- Open innovation
- Laterally thinking
- Thinking out of the box
- Team work
A transformational leader has all these traits, processes and cognitive abilities. Such as leader is able to mobilize commitment and institutionalize change in all that they do.
So the next time you visit iHub, think of the change you want to make and become a transformational leader!

Great post Jessica. I am always amazed when I go to an offices and at the lobby/ reception area they have this big frame shouting their mission statement with some ‘lovely’ words, but the service accorded to you and the Vibe you get are just the opposite. Those ‘lovely’ words mean nothing tho the people that work there.
As you develop the iHub culture, everybody should be held to high standards and deviations from the culture should not be tolerated, it is about behavior not talk. The behavior of the people at ihub should just speak volumes to anyone visiting there for the first time and not just some swanky mission statement hang on a wall.
What do the rest of you think on how a culture of over achievement and innovation is cultivated?Reply
