Women Are The Future Of Transformational Leadership

Transformational Leadership

Transformational leadership offers a way for leaders to inspire and grow the people around them. For companies, transformational leadership is their guiding light, helping them to realize far greater success than they could have imagined otherwise.

Balinda Cooper

One such leader is Balinda Cooper, President and Founder of Texas Christian Professional Women Network (TX. CPWN), Ordained Minister with Church of I AM, author of “Have You Taken Your Meds?” and volunteer Instructor at Jefferson County Correctional Facility.

She is on a mission to unite women of faith for spiritual leadership development and phenomenal community service.

Texas C.P.W.N. is a nonprofit organization established in 2017. A diverse group of professional, empowered women who empower other women. In 2020, she started the Hope 3D Transitional House – a mentor program for young ladies aging out of Foster Care to fulfill their educational and life goals.

What Is Transformational Leadership?

The mission of a leader is to take an organization from where it is to where it needs to be. Leaders who know how to positively influence others will be able to accomplish tasks and maintain morale. Transformational leadership has five authentic leadership dimensions: self-awareness, transparency, ethics, morals, and balanced processing. The ability to self-regulate, be objective and build trust are deep convictions a leader knows is tested in everyday interactions as they move towards their vision.

Why You Should Care About Transformational Leadership

These five dimensions noted above are integral and intertwined to becoming a transformational leader. It requires an ongoing process of self-development and reflection. This means you continually look at your strengths and weaknesses, and how you can improve yourself to better serve others.

According to National KIDS COUNT, in 2019 there were 219,852 (52%) male and 206,838 (48%) female in foster care. That’s 426,420 lives facing uncertain futures. Within four years of aging out, 50% have no earnings, and those who do make an average annual income of $7,500. (iFoster).

This sobering fact drives Balinda having lived this herself. She wants to break recidivism through women empowerment. In her experience, there are too many women who do not have anywhere to go after leaving foster care or prison. Women and youth are navigating the culture shock from stability to instability.

Balinda and her team of volunteers, understand to be the hands and feet of Jesus is to be called to help those who are less fortunate.

Visionary for Change

Texas C.P.W.N. vision is to get anointed women of faith off the bench to be utilized for God’s glory. Balinda Cooper motivates women at risk to take a chance on themselves through inspired spiritual growth.

Her organization offers training workshops and development to affect better mentors. The Business Networking platform supports local business and women who want to start their own business. The programs are designed to prepare and give women at risk direction for successful living. This includes 3- dimensional support: physical, economic, and holistic.

Texas C.P.W.N programs are centered on the principle of H.O.P. E. “Together we will create Her Opportunities of Purpose and Empowerment.”

H.O.P.E encourages women and youth to see their full potential. Youth empowerment translates into inspired action to get a college degree, and/or a job. A job helps buy healthier foods, find shelter or a first home, a car, wardrobe which impacts self-esteem.

Self-esteem is the foundation to making good decisions and maintaining a life-long positive attitude.

By encouraging communication, asking questions, listening to team feedback, adapting new ways of doing things, acknowledging an individual’s unique needs, transformational leaders like Balinda Cooper, are paving the way for future leaders.

All leaders, whether for-profit or nonprofit, should think about how their style of leadership can make an impact on their organization and the people around them.

Women leadership is essential in building strong and healthy relationships based on the foundation of spiritual values, authenticity, and community. Women are better able to make solid decisions and affect a better culture of teamwork. In Balinda Cooper’s words “we all grow by helping others grow.”
