In recent years, the transformational leadership construct has become a popular topic in leadership literature. Generally, the view is held that transformational leadership is superior to the more conventional transactional leadership and produces desirable leadership outcomes. The claims made for transformational leadership have been largely reported outside the instructional context yet the nature of the transformational leadership construct indicates considerable potential in the teaching of management development courses. This paper explores the idea that the enactment of transformational leadership by instructors can enhance the quality of management development instruction.
