The purpose of this study was to examine the difference in perceived importance of training in specific aspects of transformational leadership and transactional leadership during certification preparation between Generation X and Baby Boomer New York State certified school business administrators. Eighty-seven school business administrators participated in the study. The results indicated that neither generation showed a notable preference to either leadership style. Baby Boomers agreed more than Generation X with the importance of training in leadership style items measured. This supported the literature that characterized Generation X as more independent, placing a higher value on accountability, and had less organizational commitment than Baby Boomers.
