Transactional and Transformation Leadership LO24613

Replying to LO24604 --

Hi! also, Bernard Bass' Handbook on Leadership (the authoritative guide
to leadership things) talks quite a bit about the two does
Howard Gardner in "On Leadership." Rost touches on both in his critique
(Leadership in the 21st Century).

Transactional leadership is based on a quid pro quo relationship...
transformation is closer to the key leadership practice of influencing
change. In all honesty, transactional leadership is probably an oxymoron.
