ABSTRACT:
Transformational leaders consistently motivate their followers to realize their full potentials and distinguish themselves by way of extra-ordinary accomplishments which they can legitimately own even in an organizational context. This in turn works as a cementing force for emotional connect between the leaders and their followers. As a result of profound emotional connects, the employees not only identify themselves with their leaders but also map their personal vision-mission with that of the organization and thus go all out to achieve the strategic objectives set by top management. It is therefore assumed that transformational leadership serves as predictor of employee engagement. While there are factors such as compensation, organizational culture and climate, training and development opportunities, challenging assignments, etc. which augment employee engagement, transformational leadership is the single most important factor that unlocks the hidden potentials of the employees and inspires them to write success stories in a way that they can claim as their own. This article examines how transformational leaders catalyse engagement of their team members in contemporary organizations.
