Transformational and Transactional leadership

(1) Why are Transformational and Transactional leadership considered to be contrasting forms of leadership?

(2) In what types of situation or organization might these different styles of leadership be used?

(3) Which of these two do you think is the most effective style of leadership for the modern workplace?

Remember that there are 3 parts to the question, so be sure to allocate sufficient attention to each part. Try and show how you have related your analysis to the module reading, so define your terms, and then show an understanding of the concepts by demonstrating how and where each of the different styles of leadership might be used. The final part of the question needs you to think about how the modern workplace is evolving and then to make a reasoned judgment as to which style of leadership is the most appropriate. Most importantly, you need to show why.
