Transformational Leadership: Democratic or Despotic?
Allix, Nicholas M.
Educational Management & Administration, v28 n1 p7-20 Jan 2000
James MacGregor Burns's conceptualization of transforming leadership stressed the moral and educative nature of the leader-follower relationship. However, critical examination of Burns's account uncovers philosophical and technical difficulties with some of his central claims. Transformative leadership may be structured more for domination than democratic engagement. (Contains 44 references.) (MLH)
