Novella Foundation’s coordinator for the Construcción Ciudadana program, added the following: «A transformational leader is the one who inspires other leaders, from his or her authenticity and profound genius, to make the changes we wish to see in our environment; a transformational leader is capable of seeing opportunities within a crises and conflicts, practices dialogue faithfully, with a spirit of innovation and a compassionate human-to-human outlook».
