Transformational Leadership

Transformational Leadership involves strong personal identification of followers with the leader, the transformational leader motivates followers to perform beyond expectations by creating an awareness of the importance of mission and the vision in such a way that followers share beliefs and values and are able to transcend self-interests and tie the vision to the higher-order needs of self-esteem and self-actualisation, leaders create a mental picture of the shared vision in the minds of the followers through the use of language that has deep meaning from shared experiences, in addition, they are role models: In their daily actions they set an example and give meaning to shared assumptions, beliefs, and values. (Rosenbach & Taylor, 2006).
