There is strong agreement that transformational leadership is an ideal most leaders should strive for. However, measuring and evaluating whether or not someone is a transformational leader is very tricky. Do you think transformational leadership is something that can easily be measured, or more like something that you could describe as “you know it when you see it”?
Do a Google search on “transformational leadership questionnaire” or “transformational leadership quiz” and try to find a good questionnaire that measures one’s transformational leadership qualities. Take the quiz, and share the link with your classmates. Discuss how accurate and reliable you think this quiz is, and whether or not it would be useful in the business world. As a follow-up post, try taking one of the questionnaires that your classmates found. Finally, make sure to discuss how the quiz you took relates to the definitions of transformational leadership that you found in the required background readings.
