Transactional leadership expands on individuals keeping tight guidelines and procedures as they perform responsibilities, while transformational leadership expands on change, development, and imagination. The difference is Transformational leadership expands on consideration and cooperation in resolutions and making decisions (Wesson, 2020). In my line of work, I fall into transactional leadership at the moment due to the line of work I perform. I have strict rules to follow according to the Federal Acquisition Regulations which in a nutshell is the law book on how to procure goods and services.

The why is the passion behind a business an invention an idea or to inspire (Sanjeev Arora, 2022).
