Transactional versus Transformational Approach in HRM

Change is a challenge we should all keep in mind as a learning opportunity; not as a problem. We might even consider it as a way to grow up. So it's critical a leader gives an opportunity to the follower (employees) to change; not under a persuasive idea.
Expanding consciousness becomes a significant tool for reaching matureness.

Transactional or Transformation Leadership in Human Resources

It is not a matter of Transactional OR Transformational Leadership; rather it should be transactional AND transformational. BOTH are important, and it depends on situation and the organization's maturity stage and requirements. When there is an abrupt change in the outside environment or a BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) is set by the organization, it requires bringing change in organization DNA and for this, HRM needs a transformational leadership approach to facilitate the organization to adopt with change in the market/outside. And, in case of incremental change or a normal growth process Transactional Leadership would suit the immediate need.
