Here, leader tries to create a good bonding or relation. It helps in growth of both leader and followers. Leader provide flexible rules and regulation and guided by group norms. The essence of this theory is leader transform his follower both intrinsic and extrinsic. In this context, the transformational leaderships under which leader creates the vision and mission accordingly they guide to team member which helps to get the idea about like how to completing the work and attain the mission of the team (Daicoff, 2012.).

Transformational leadership is style wherein leader followees the rules and regulation for matining the relation with the team members (Fullan, 2011). In this context, this rules and regulation helps person to maintaining the behaviours towards the services and performing in well manner. This theory based on the inspiration motivation, intellectual stimulation, idealized influence and individualized consideration which person focuses on these aspects and accordingly they motivate. On the other hand, the another leadership style like democratic leadership style under which leader takes the decision with the help of all team members (5 Different Types of Leadership Styles ,2015).

Apart from this, the laissez faire leadership style under which leader measuring the performance of the team members. In this way, if the individual requires to training and development for enhancing the performance and improving the knowledge and skills which is needed at the work place for completing the task. It helps followers to generates the interest towards and attain the team goals and objectives. However, this leadership style creates the lack of control of the individual and leader not able to measure the every performance of the person (Kathy and Deborah, 2007).
