Leadership is an essential task in management (Weihrich, et al., 2008), as it is an important factor that contributes enormously to the over-all wellbeing of the organisations (Odumeru & Ifeanyi, 2013). As stated by Cox (2001), transactional and transformational are two important types of leadership. The differentiation amongst these two types of leadership was initially made by Downton (1973), as cited in (Barnett, et al., 2001), and introduced by Burns (1978) in his descriptive work on political leaders.

However, there are certain things that we maintain throughout our nursing careers. One of them may be the philosophies that guides our thinking throughout our nursing careers.

The success of any organization in the current competitive world is directly linked to how well and consistently the organization performs, and the style of leadership plays a significant role in this performance (Ojokuku, Odetayo & Sajuyigbe, 2012). With this perspective, leadership can be defined as the capability of an individual to persuade and inspire others so that they contribute towards effectiveness and success of the organization (Yukl & Becker, 2006). Various leadership styles and their influence on organizational success have been advanced and studied (Nanjundeswaraswamy & Swamy, 2014). One such style is the transformational leadership style, which according to Givens (2008), acts as a driving force for organizational performance and innovation. Besides, he adds, transformational leadership enhances employee job satisfaction as the transformational leader interacts with subordinates to motivate them to achieve maximum output in their work responsibilities (Jalal, Khawaja, Kamariah, Fosa, Muhd & Ahmad, 2012).

The nature and the structure of the healthcare organizations necessitate the managers to provide both the leadership controls and the management of powers to all the stakeholders in the field (Kelly 2011). Indeed, the constraints and the scope of the roles and tasks carried out to provide efficient services to the general public are so diverse that a single staff can’t operate on their own without the help of the other individuals. For proper functionality of the organizations in the health sector, coordination and the management of powers is crucial as it ensures the objectives of the firm are achieved.

(Sullivan & Decker, 2001) Transformational leaders are usually given higher position and are known for their charismatic sense and ability to develop high visions and regards in the work they do. They often give their best performances due to the low morale or self esteem Example: Steve Job, Bill Gates and Ratan Tata. As the existentialist rightly said, we always have a choice, in doing what we already have done or doing that which we have never done.

Transformational leadership is part of a “new leadership” paradigm. Transformational leadership is a process that transforms and changes the followers. Transformational leadership is not just for the follower, when the leader engages with the follower and creates a bond with them, both the leader and follower benefit from it. The leader takes into concern values, ethics, standards, and long-term goals, and tries to assess the follower’s motives, satisfy their minds, and treats them as human beings. Transformational leadership has four factors idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration.
1) Question: If you were consulting with the HTE board of directors soon after Harold started making changes, what would you advise them regarding Harold’s leadership from a transformational perspective? Answer: Firstly, transformational leadership is a process that does exactly how it sounds, it transforms people.
