Transformational Leadership not Easy for Managers

Traditionally managers have not oriented themselves into playing a leadership role. Their focus seems to be on the task alone with little consideration given to the person performing the task.
The transactional element of leadership for many managers is easier to deal with than the transformational element of leadership that may involve the management of change with employees at the core.

Traditional Management is not Leadership

Traditional, transactional managers are technical in their approach to work. Unlike leaders that are more personal and tend to influence attitudes of their subordinates or followers as the case may be.
The beauty of the first type of management is the ability to ensure law and order and adherence to policy, but it fails to get the motivation and willing commitment needed to achieve the overall corporate goal. Such managers are said to do things right while leaders do the right thing.
If you combine classical management with some leadership qualities that will produce the transformational element missing in the operational variant.
