Select two leaders (from the US or international) who you consider to be examples of transactional and transformational leadership. Conduct independent research on these individuals and create a profile that addresses the following:
- What makes one leader transactional and the other transformational?
- What added value does each bring to their organizations?
- What conditions and organizational contingencies influence whether a transactional or transformational leadership style would be most effective?
- Considering your answer above, compare the effectiveness of both leaders you profiled in their given environments. Was their leadership style appropriate?
