Transformational Leadership and Commitment

A Study in Bolivia


Claudia Zuleta Luksic

In this book various application-oriented facets are interlinked. Transnational concepts are touched upon and it is basically assumed that deviating behavioral patterns on an individual level can be pinpointed in varying contexts. The practical relevance is founded on the fact that in Latin America, few studies have been published to date that emphasize the systematic reproduction of organizational behaviour from the point of view of transformational leadership. The reference to distinctive cultural as well as regional features is delved into in much more detail whilst doing research on this topic. This is underscored by the references of numerous (Anglo-American) authors who even state that there is a paradigm shift due to the concept of transformational leadership.
