Transformational Leadership, Second Edition is intended for both the scholars and serious students of leadership. It is a comprehensive review of theorizing and empirical research that can serve as a reference and starting point for additional research on the theory.
It can be used as a supplementary textbook in an intense course on leadership - or as a primary text in a course or seminar focusing on transformational leadership.
New in the Second Edition:
"…the book clearly outlines the kinds of programmatic steps that are used in trying to develop leaders to be more transformational, including techniques such as 360-degree feedback, personal development plans, working on vision plans and articulation of visions, etc."
—The Member Connector - International Leadership Assoc.
"A new or revised book by on the world's most eminent researchers on leadership is usually the cause for celebration, and this work by Bernard Bass (writing with Ronald E. Riggio) is no exception….this is a must-read book for researchers and advanced students in leadership in general and transformational leadership in particular….a valuable contribution for any serious student on this topic."
"Bernie Bass' legacy is an international tidal wave of researchers and scholars exploring transformational leadership. The study of leadership has many mothers but it was Bernie Bass who became its driving force. We are delighted to have this new edition of Transformational Leadership and to find the markedly thoughtful influence of leadership scholar and social psychologist Ron Riggio. It brings in substantial new findings, consolidates and conceptualizes previous work, and brings the work of leadership to life with real leaders in real-life situations."
—James MacGregor Burns and Georgia Sorenson, University of Maryland
