Transformational leadership and transactional leadership often occur in the same organization. These two-leadership transformational and transactional impact each other with different behavior patterns resulting in the same goal accomplishment. The transformational leadership provides motivational tactics to improve performance with their followers. The transformation leaders exhibit internal ideas and values to incorporate followers to act in ways that support the greater good (Northouse, 2016).
These leaders have charismatic factors that draw others to follow their vision. For example, Moses was a charismatic leader who leads the Israelites with a view of God. Moses inspirational motivated the group with the symbol of a staff. He convinces the Israelites that it would be in their best interested to leave Egypt for a land unseen but promise. Moses gave his followers a promise vision of new hope. Moses made a discipline lifestyle change by developing systems and routines in areas for long-term growth and success (Maxwell, 2007).
The transactional leadership impacts transformational leader by exchanging values with followers to advance their agenda (Northouse, 2016). The transactional leaders or overseers who make sure the goals of the visionary are carried out. They promote and give rewards to followers to perform to the best of their ability to receive special recognition in the organization. These leaders sometimes are placed in a management or supervisory roles. They take two forms of action: active and passive. A leader using these forms of work monitor the followers for adequacy and daily tasks. The passive form action is used to intervene when standards not met, or problems occur. For example, the spies who went to seek out Canaan and brought back bad reviews to discourage the Israelites to abandon the vision set by Moses and inspired by God. This report produced psychological problems and a different outcome for the people of Israel.
The components that affect the moral values of authentic leadership is self-awareness, internalized moral perspective, balanced processing, relational transparency (Northouse, 2016). Self-awareness is to know the drawbacks that will keep you from crucial areas to success. Internalized moral perspective is a component used to stay in control of the vision and challenge the reason why. Balanced processing is the decision making to stop self-reward until the goal is to finish. Relational transparency refers to being open and honest about self-discipline. Mike Delancey said “businesses need to differentiate between their shirkers and their workers because if they reward both the same, they’ll soon find they have a lot more of the former than the latter! (as cited in Maxwell, 2007).” Mike Delancey quote is saying be true to yourself with others by been open and in control of the vision and goals put in place.?
