Abstract

The paper discusses the conceptual framework of issues of management of higher education institutions. The paper discusses the dynamics of transformational and transactional leadership styles of faculties using secondary data. The paper explores theoretical debates on leadership in academic institutions. Transformational leadership inspires faculties to achieve their full potential and integrate personal goals with organizational goals. Transformational leadership characteristics lead to extra effort by faculty and higher level of job satisfaction. Highly transactional, contractual organizational culture and bureaucracies are characterized as attending more to self interest than to the interest of the organization. Laissez faire leadership style has negative correlation with follower satisfaction and follower extra effort. Integrating programs such as seminars, workshops and updates on school administration and leadership can sharpen the skills of institutional leaders on the job.

Keywords: Transformational Leadership, Transactional Leadership, Laissez Faire
