|Transactional leadership also known as managerial leadership, tend to focus on supervision, organisation, and driving performance. This a style of leadership usually promotes compliance through both rewards and punishments. The idea is that work is a direct transaction for money and reward and therefore performance can be manipulated through increasing the transactions (rewards) and discouraging low performance behaviours through punishments such as withdrawing support, a bad appraisal, a lower or no bonus for example.||Transformational leadership is where a leader works with people across the organisation and with external stakeholders to help identify what change is needed, creating a vision to guide change and creating commitment to the organisation, its values and any changes needed.
