: Transformational leadership is a leadership theory that states leaders act as change agents for organizations. They do this through a three-act process that takes both the organization and individuals from the past to the future. It also occurs in a terms of the technical, political, and cultural frameworks, with each framework being equally important to the organization. Transformational leadership enhances the motivation, morale, and performance of followers through a variety of mechanisms. Charismatic leadership is the behavioral tendencies and personal characteristics of leaders that create an exceptionally strong relationship between them and their followers.
Sometimes managers need to be transactional, by devoting their energy to maintaining the status quo through tried and true methods. At other times they may need to be transformational leaders dedicated to seeing an organization through change. This course discusses the transformational leadership theory and how it is used in organizations.Instructor Description
