Transformational leadership is considered to be the “ultimate” form of leadership. It puts the employees in the center of all managerial activities/decisions with the goal to develop each employee into a member of a high performing team whilst overachieving set company targets. Once this goal has been reached the Senior Manager is ready for new tasks and will move on, confident that the employees and team he or she developed is fully capable to succeed without his or her leadership.
