Transformational leaders, on the other hand, seek to inspire their followers and set a vision of the future. To promote growth in an organization, they will use strategies such as inspiring innovation or challenging the existing norms. These strategies are then implemented with input from their staff which helps ensure that everyone’s voices are heard while also allowing for more effective decision making.
While these models appear to be similar, they have very different approaches when it comes time to manage stakeholder satisfaction. Servant leadership emphasizes humane treatment whereas transformational leadership promotes forward-thinking and innovation.
