Transformational leadership 39 It is not my intention to question the need for leadership per se. But it is my intention to argue that the dominant models within the rubric of transformational leadership are fundamentally flawed. In particular, they promote, unintentionally or otherwise, group dynamics often found in cults rather than in ‘normal’ business organizations. More inclusive and participatory models of the leadership process are required. It is a conclusion to which I return repeatedly in this book.

They have more freedom than followers to violate long-established norms. The risk is of followers prematurely complying with destructive forms of action to ingratiate themselves with leaders (Jones 1990). The leader, meanwhile, takes the absence of overt dissent as assent and, moreover, views it as supplementary evidence that the given course of action is correct – what has been termed consensual validation (Tourish and Robson 2003). Transformational leadership is liable to exacerbate these problematic processes yet further, with negative consequences for the quality of a leader’s decision making.

It also disguises many of the elements of compulsion that are involved, even from those directly affected (Tompkins and Cheney 1985). Coercive persuasion is a means of linking surveillance with intense indoctrination. It seeks to convince those at the receiving end that the sincere adoption of the designated belief systems is wholly consistent with their own self-interest. When organizational members embrace, either partially or completely, an ideological orientation sanctioned by powerful leaders it follows that the legitimacy of organizational structures, hierarchies and practices is more clearly established.
