ABSTRACT
In this article, the authors discuss the differences between two kinds of leaders, namely, transactional leaders and transformational leaders. They state that transactional leaders engage in a dominant management style which was influenced by the command structures during World War II, while transformational leaders do not view people as tools and use charisma, inspirational motivation, and intellectual stimulation. They also claim that employees prefer transformational leaders.
