Transactional leaders guide or motivate their followers in the direction of established goals by clarifying role and task requirements (Obama, 2015). The focus is on the task and role of subordinates to achieve those tasks. They are committed to organizational goals and offer rewards to those who perform well. Transactional leaders view the relationship between managers and subordinates as exchange such as in giving to receive. When employees perform well, they receive a reward. When they perform poorly, they will be punished in some way. Rules, procedures, and standards are essential in transactional leadership. They determine the goals for subordinates and guide them towards their achievement.

It must be effective, efficient, and excellent to avoid waste of human potential. It is not enough to be transformational in one’s individual actions alone.
