Why we need transformational leadership and emotional intelligence in corrections

The National Institute of Corrections encourages transformational leadership, which is based on mentorship and accessibility


Correctional leaders must engage with their employees in a more approachable way and be able to respond empathetically to situations. As such, the National Institute of Corrections encourages transformational leadership, which is a leadership style based on mentorship and accessibility. In addition, all corrections employees should aim to improve their emotional intelligence, which can help them respond more effectively to volatile situations.

In this video, American Military University’s Dr. Michael Pittaro explains why transformational leadership and emotional intelligence are both essential in the field of corrections.
