Traditional vs. Transformational Leadership
Consider the following passage:
James MacGregor Burns and Bernard Bass were among the first to differentiate between leaders who exercise traditional leadership (transactional leaders) and those who practice a more potent kind of leadership labeled transformational.
While transactional leaders focus on satisfying the basic needs of followers, transformational leaders seek to fulfill their higher needs. As a result, while transactional leaders rely on giving rewards to employees in exchange for desirable performance, transformational leaders seek to enrich workers’ self-esteem and inspire them to become self-actualized. Burns, Bass, and others theorized that transformational leaders bring about big changes, making big differences in their organizations, whereas transactional leaders mostly succeed in maintaining the status quo.
The following factors are among leadership variables researchers identify as active in transformational leadership: charisma (the leader’s ability to connect and build trust), intellectual stimulation (the leader’s ability to foster effective problem solving and decision making), and inspiration (the leader’s ability to motivate and communicate high expectations and performance).
What leaders are you aware of or do you know who embody these qualities? What innovation(s) have they succeeded in implementing?
In a two-page (minimum) paper, respond to the information above, focusing on the question posed. You may use as many leaders as examples to address the question as you see fit. Use at least one outside resource from a scholarly or reputable professional source. Your paper must follow APA format.
