Values of IndraNooyi
Leadership of follower motivationTransformational vs transactional leadership(Northouse, 2007)Transformational leadership factors include:1. Idealized influence and charisma2. Inspirational motivation3. Intellectual stimulation4. Individualized consideration
Robbins and Judge (2011) suggest transformational leaders inspire or motivate followers to transcend their own self-interests and are capable of having a profound and extraordinary effect on followers.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s abilities to express his moralistic approach to civil rights led followers to a sense of intrinsic motivation which they developed into a movement that peacefully became his vision of an effectual nonviolent direct-action program (King, 1963) (Northouse, 2007). Dr. King provides one example of an effective transformational leader.
Robbins and Judge (2011) suggest transactional leaders guide or motivate their followers in the direction of established goals by clarifying role and task requirements.
Transactional Leadership factors include Northouse, 2007):1. Contingent reward2. Constructive transactions3. Management by exception involving negative feedback and corrective criticism. 4. Active and passive leadership5. Corrective transactions
