The field of education is faced with the challenges of the constantly emerging new technologies, the diversity of students from different backgrounds, and the diversification of teaching methods. These changes require teachers not only to have traditional teaching skills, but also to constantly innovate and adapt to new situations. The core concept of transformational leadership emphasizes encouraging innovation, learning and active participation, which precisely meets the needs of contemporary education. By encouraging innovation, empowerment and creating a culture of innovation, transformational leadership promotes the growth and development of teachers in the field of education, thus providing students with higher quality education. In this paper, we explore the characteristics of transformational leadership and its impact on the development of craftsman teachers. Through a comprehensive review of the literature and a systematic analysis, we propose that transformational leadership can inspire team innovation. Additionally, we suggest that utilizing error cognition can be a means to encourage innovative behavior within teacher teams. Our objective is to establish a community of craftsman teachers and formulate a strategy for fostering a culture of campus spirit. This paper aims to provide valuable insights for university educators seeking to enhance their craftsmanship.
