Importance of relation between leader and subordinates

Transformation of an organization is a three step process of revitalization, creating a new vision and institutionalizing change. For this transformation of the organization, transformational leaders act as change agents and create an atmosphere where everyone is involved in driving change and achieving a common mission. Communication is the main tool used by these leaders to achieve this goal.

In the learning phase of this module, I realized the importance of relation between leader and his/her followers. We all have this thinking that respect for leader is only possible if he keeps a distance with his/her followers to contact them formally and occassionally but after reading about this leadership style, it changed my thinking because trust and confidence in the leader drives respect for him/her and this trust and confidence in leader is possible if there is this informal contact between leader and his/her followers.

Transformational leaders

Transformational leadership theory is something new to me and to everyone here as it emerged recently and is most suitable to adopt in this competitive environment where change is compulsory and required to compete with others. Inspiring followers and communicating them about the need for change and its importance is the most crucial part for the top management or leaders but following the four dimensions of this leadership theory that is idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation and individualized consideration made this task comparatively easier and gives a tool to the leader to follow.

While doing this PMA of leadership and excellence, the main focus of it wa to relate this theory to the practices in the real world and this was the main learning part. Reading about something is one part and implementing it is the other and I put myself in that situation and assuming the characteristics of a transformational leader made a chart of to do list for the CEO and HR director of waveriders which actually helped me to act as a leader in imaginary world and implement theories in real because they are useful.
