Abstract: Nowadays, managers have to face the complexity of the technological and informational environment, social change, increasing entrepreneurial activity, accelerating technological developments and a more educated and skilled workforce. Leadership has become a critical element in the success of an organization. Transformational leaders generate a greater involvement in the work of subordinates. This involvement results in higher efficiency and satisfaction leading to managerial and organizational performance. In theory, transformational leadership is positively correlated with a variety of organizational outcomes. From a theoretical point of view, the literature offers empirical evidence and reinforces the assumption that transformational leadership generates positive results within organizations. This paper aims to treat the concept of transformational leadership and to analyze existing approaches and studies in the literature. The main objective of this study is to present the evolution of transformational leadership by examining additional factors that have an impact on this leadership style. The research methodology of the paper is based on literature review and on the analysis of various studies and relevant findings in the field.
