Transformational Leadership is a popular topic among leadership scholars, but for research administrators, Transformational Leadership might seem like an enigmatic approach given its various contexts. Research administrators might think the transformational approach is only for executives, or that they do not have enough staff to call themselves transformational leaders, or that organizational transformations belong at the level of chief executive or the board. Bass (1990) noted that transformational leadership can be taught, learned, and practiced. The following argument supports this statement, promotes Transformational Leadership as an acceptable approach for research administrators, illustrates how different philosophies can be integrated into Transformational Leadership, and provides an illustration of the various ways Transformational Leadership can be applied. (Contains 5 tables and 8 figures.)
