Transformational Leadership Style

Posted by The New Economics Education

The word leadership certainly is not foreign to our ears, the word transformational probably unfamiliar to the ear most people (if the transformer must have a lot to know ... :D). Well ... the following will present some understanding of transformational leadership by some experts.

Yulk (1994: 11) says that the leadership (leadership) is the process by which individuals influence other group members to achieve organizational goals. Meanwhile, according to Robbins (2001) leadership is a relationship between a person with another person. Leaders are able to influence others to be willing to work together on tasks related to achieving what is desired.

A research body in his research found several variations of this model for understanding leadership. Some small details are very useful in theoretical research and find a multifactor model of Leadership, Bass, Yamarino, & Hater (in Corrigan, 2002). In this model of transformational leadership put forward as an effective leader helps members of the group that is subordinate to change the shape of the program and develop the needs of their members. Transformational leadership goals achieved through charisma, inspiration, intellectual stimulant, and individual consideration to the interests of subordinates.

In Bernard Bass (1990), transformational leadership is a form of leadership where the leader is able to expand and improve working interest in their subordinates, the leadership system in which its leaders are capable of triggering sensitivity and acceptance of corporate vision, mission and goals, and where its leaders have control over their subordinates so that subordinates- subordinates are able to explore their potential for the progress of each company / group.

According to Burns (in Gardner and Stough, 2002). Transformational leadership in the other sense is the process of motivating subordinates in an attractive way to enhance the goals and values. Transformational leadership is also defined and interpreted as a vision for the organization and then inspire subordinates to participate in generating this view.

Leaders often review and make corrections to the performance of their subordinates and the leader has full control in running their organization. Transformational leadership in this regard to be important in survival. Based on the research of Olga Epitropaki, the system shows that transformational leadership:
  1. Can significantly improve organizational performance 
  2. Have a positive impact on long-term sales and customer satisfaction 
  3. Enhance organizational commitment of subordinates 
  4. Increase the confidence of employees and corporate behavior (organizational citizenship Behaviours)
  5. Improve employee satisfaction with work and leadership 
  6. Reduce the pressure of work and improve the welfare of employees

According to Robbins (2001) transformational leadership is a leader who can inspire their employees to better prioritize the progress of the organization rather than self-interest, giving attention both to employees and be able to change the consciousness of its employees in looking at old problems in new ways.

Transformational leadership is defined as involving a change of leadership in organizations. Leadership is also defined as an act of leadership requires the motivation of subordinates in order to be willing to work for high-level goals are considered to be beyond his personal interests at the time. Transformational leadership are indeed interpreted as true leadership, because leadership is really working towards the goal of the act of directing the organization to a destination that never achieved before. (Locke in Yanto 2004).

Transformational leaders are supportive and listen to the needs of their followers; they are confident and express strong ideals. Because they set such a strong example, their followers want to become like them.
