(Transformational leadership is defined as a leadership approach that causes change in individuals and social systems. In its ideal form, it creates valuable and positive change in the followers with the end goal of developing followers into leaders. Enacted in its authentic form, transformational leadership enhances the motivation, morale and performance of followers through a variety of mechanisms. Organizational development is a system-wide application and transfer of behavioral science knowledge to the planned development, improvement, and reinforcement of the strategies, structures, and processes that lead to organizational effectiveness. Organizational development enables “development” of individuals and the organization that promotes values of human self-determination, potential, and growth. It concerns an organizations capability to solve its own problems and adapt to its environment and helps organizations knowledge to change and improve. Change management helps organizations implement specific changes and its values and practices are highly pragmatic aimed to make change processes effective and efficient. It places importance on how well change is implemented and at what cost and speed, not whether the organization or its members have learned.)
