Sets out the benefits the organization gets from transformational leadership and asks if this form of leadership can be developed. Reports a field experiment in which 40 managers within a Canadian health care organization were given training or counselling designed to develop or enhance their transformational leadership, and their 180 subordinates were surveyed to assess how successful the intervention had been. Concludes that the results replicate other research that found that leadership training and personal feedback resulted in enhanced transformational leadership. However, points out that this research disentangles the impact of feedback and training, indicating that both approaches can be effective on their own. Indicates the implications of this for leadership training.
