This article highlights well the need for a balanced approach that includes elements of transformational and transactional leadership. The point is also well taken that the interplay between culture and leadership is bi-directional.

Conflict, as briefly mentioned above, can be constructive. When people are brave enough to share ideas that don't fit the norm, a wise leader checks his/her temptation to immediately respond defensively and instead works at objectively considering the unexpected perspective. Monotonal teams may work smoothly, but I'll take the beauty, depth, and reach of a well-conducted symphony any day! Guess you'd call me a fan of a balanced transactional/ transformational leadership. :)
