Exploring Transformational and Pseudo-Transformational Leadership With Three Leader Examples

Abstract: Are Gandhi and Hitler both transformational leaders? Pseudo-transformational leaders impact followers in much the same way as transformational leaders but with different motives, behaviors, and outcomes (Christi, Barling, & Turner). This classroom activity uses examples of three diverse leaders from the United States, India, and Kenya and asks students to evaluate each as either a transformational or a pseudo-transformational leader. Session participants will engage in the student activity and receive all the materials to use the activity in their classes. Students who have participated in this activity have been able to clearly differentiate transformational from pseudo-transformational leader behaviors.
