Info -

transformational leadership


style of leadership where a leader works with teams to identify needed change, by creating a vision to guide the change through inspiration, and executing the change in tandem with committed members of a group

Context: Info

Finally, we demonstrate some of the ways in which this change in leadership can be stimulated, e.g. leadership development programmes ( transformational leadership , enhancing leader–member exchange), and we emphasise that leadership development must be embedded in the whole organisational context, which may help to prevent role conflict resulting from a lack of coherence between the concepts taught in the training sessions and the behaviour of superiors in practice.
