Transactional or Transformational Leadership 

Last week you explored several elements of managing human capital, including how to motivate them to be the best they can be. A key element of motivating others is being a good leader. But what type of leader is needed, and when? Transactional leadership is primarily concerned with maintaining the status quo whereas transformational leadership is geared toward moving beyond the current status to get to the ‘next level’.

First, read Chapter 11 in the text.

Research the key leaders in the company you have chosen for your final project. Common leaders to consider researching include the CEO, President, Vice President, CFO, and any board members. Based on what you find in your research, do you feel the company leaders are generally more transactional or transformational leaders? Why? Given the current circumstances of your company and the economic environment in which they operate, do you feel the leaders are demonstrating the best leadership form possible? (transactional versus transformational). Why or why not?

Review a minimum of two of your classmate’s posts and respond with additional insights, information, questions, or links to more information on the leadership types they shared. Do you agree with their assessment of their leadership team? Why or why not? Your responses should be academic in nature and linked to research and management topics discussed this week rather than personal stories of shopping with the company they chose for example.Options Menu: Forum
