Know when to use transactional leadership

"Transactional Leadership" will teach you the transactional approach to leadership. Transactional leaders take control, tell their teams what to do, and follow a reward-penalty system to encourage optimal performance. If your team needs an extra push, it’s a practical approach. However, like all leadership styles, the framework can sometimes do more harm than good.

So, when should you use the transactional approach, and how can you be most effective with this style? Learn the best time to use transactional leadership in this micro course.
