Transformational Leadership at the Movies


I recently came across a website that highlights the aspects of Transformational Leadership in several movies. This site is great as it contrasts the differences between Transaction Leadership, and several other leadership theories, siteing well know movies.

Here is the site:

You will probably recognise, or even have seen some of these movies!

Transformational leadership is defined by individualized consideration (IC), intellectual stimulation (IS), inspirational motivation (IM), and idealized influence (II). These factors, along with contingent reward (a transactional factor), have been shown to improve subordinate productivity, increase morale, foster organizational effectiveness and lower absenteeism.

Examples of movies for each category are provided on their site.

To your ongoing development

Warm regards
