As they lead, our students engage in their own personal transformation. Our students become leaders who have a transformative effect not only on themselves, but also on the people around them, and ultimately, on their world.

Research shows that followers of transformational leaders accomplish more than they imagined possible and fulfill more of their potential. They suffer less burnout and have a greater sense of fulfillment.


We believe that the skills and qualities of transformational leaders can be taught. In our program, all content and practices are grounded deeply in your personal and professional experience. Program mentors will support you to make positive, creative contributions that influence all the people and initiatives you touch in powerful ways.

Through our program you will learn the four tracks of Wright Transformational Leadership Training, also known as TIME:

  • Teaming. Leading effective work teams, starting with being a fully engaged team member and graduating to heading an organization.
  • Influencing. Coaching for success and developing the skills of effective speaking and training.
  • Managing. Overseeing and leading effective areas of a company, measuring and assuring high performance.
  • Empowering. The arts of delegating, empowering communication, and motivating and facilitating optimal performance.


Wright Graduate University’s four graduate certificate programs comprise courses that are scaffolded into the Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership and Coaching. In these certificate programs, competency of program outcomes below is developed to varying degrees with in-depth mastery achieved only through the cumulative completion of the Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership and Coaching degree.

Upon successful program completion, you will be prepared to:

  • Demonstrate visionary transformational leadership skills.
  • Demonstrate transformational emergence coaching skills.
  • Conduct professional/business training.
  • Demonstrate professional/business communication.
  • Demonstrate a principle-based philosophical orientation to personal responsibility.
  • Initiate strategic self-development for professional success.
  • Manifest social-emotional intelligence.
  • Exercise integrative, transdisciplinary problem-solving.

In addition to the above requirements, admission to the Graduate Certificate in Transformational Leadership requires prior completion of PL01 and PL04. Individuals who are currently enrolled in one of these non-credit courses offered through Wright Living may apply and be conditionally admitted pending completion of both. Consult an admissions staff member for recommendations on timing for completion of these non-credit requirements.

*For individuals who have completed the prerequisite non-credit trainings PL01 and PL04.
