The Bilateral Dimensions of Transformational Leadership: (University Leadership Edition) by Mark Ellis Ph.D.
Used as a university textbook, this groundbreaking research by Dr. Mark Ellis examines the bilateral dimensions of transformational leadership within the context of higher education. Since its inception over 30 years ago, transformational leadership has rapidly become known as an effective leadership model. The positive effects of transformational leadership on organizational constituency have been clearly supported by research. However, the inner dimensions of transformational leadership have undergone extremely limited empirical study. The major components of transformational leadership consist of inspirational motivation, idealized influence, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration. This research further investigates transformational leadership beyond these four characteristics by focusing on two variables identified as bilateral dimensions.
