Transcript of Transactional Leadership

An Analyzation of Transactional Leadership
What is a Transactional Leader?
Transactional Leadership has a clear chain of command focusing on management and motivating the community through appealing to them through their own self-interest. The basic management traits of the transactional leader are controlling, organizing, and short term planning. Transactional leaders tend to be authoritative, leading the community to do as they say with members of that community being rewarded for the positive and the negative having corresponding punitive consequences with all requirements clearly stated. Transactional leadership is also called: "the telling style."

Historical Context
Transactional Leadership, a concept introduced by Max Weber in 1947 appeared in 1978 when James MacGregor Burns wrote the book Leadership. The book identified two types of political leadership, transactional and transformational. According to Burns, "the result of transforming leadership is a relationship of mutual stimulation and elevation that converts followers into leaders and may converts leaders into moral agents" (Burns, 1978). B.M. Bass further developed these principles of transactional versus transformational leadership in the 1985 book,
Leadership and Performance beyond Expectation
. Bass (1985) applied Burns (1978) ideas to organizational management. He states: "transactional leaders mostly consider how to marginally improve and maintain the quantity and quality of performance, hot to substitute one goal for another, how to reduce resistance to particular actions, and how to implement decisions" (Bass, 1985).
