he transformational leader attemptsto give individualized considerationto the needs of followers to align the fol-lowers’ goals with the leader or organiza-tion’s goals. The transformational leaderis inspirational by creating an excitingpicture of the benefits from the futurestate that the leader is moving the grouptoward. Transformational leaders are alsorole models who become a source of ideal influence for followers. The desiredoutcome of this type of leadership is agroup of followers who are highly com-mitted and internally motivated toachieve the goals and objectives estab-lished by the leader.Transformational leadership con-trasts with the more traditional method of leadership known as transactional leader-ship. The transactional leader is envi-sioned as engaging in a series of encoun-ters or social transactions with followersin which the leader negotiates compli-ance to ideal behaviors. The transaction-al leader motivates followers by usingrewards and consequences, which areexternal motivators. As a result, the follower will becomestrongly committed to achieving theleader’s objectives only if the followerstrongly desire to obtain the reward oravoid the consequences. Followers donot generally consider transactional lead-ers to be ethical, although there is noth-ing inherently unethical about this lead-ership approach.Ethical leadership is often discussedin the context of organizations and thebehavior of organizational leaders.Employees, investors, and other organi-zational stakeholders expect leaders toact in an ethical manner and to avoidorganizational activities that may beharmful to society. To meet this expectation, organiza-tional leaders not only have to be ethicalin their personal behaviors but mustensure that the other members of theorganization behave ethically. Ethicalleaders should treat employees fairly andimpartially. In addition, ethical leadersshould ensure that the activities of theorganization do not unduly harm society.

hings are never easy for small-busi-ness owners in New York City and theother neighboring communities. No matterhow hard they try, there are always prob-lems to solve and fires to put out. New rules and policies includingincreasing fines and penalties are beingimplemented by the New York CityCouncil. Hundred of small-business ownersfrom our communities are finding it verydifficult to keep pace with new regula-tions. Bar owners, restaurant operators, bar-bers, hairstylists, home improvement con-tractors, daycare operators and other entre-preneurs are facing challenges as a resultof New York City Council policies.The Council is the lawmaking body of the City of New York and comprising 51members from 51 Council districtsthroughout the five boroughs. The Councilserves as a check against the Mayor in a"strong" Mayor-council governmentmodel. The Council monitors performance of city agencies and makes land use decisionsas well as legislating on a variety of otherissues. The Council has 35 committeeswith oversight of various functions of thecity government. For several decades members of ourcommunity have been voting for theDemocratic Party. In fact, the majority or48 members of the current City Councilmembers are Democrats, while only three(3) represent the Republicans. Nevertheless, despite their politicalaffiliations and support for the Democrats,it would appear that there is a disconnectbetween our local business operators andtheir City Council members. Our business operators complainedthat they are not being consulted on theCouncil’s new policies or regulations. It would appear that most of our entre-preneurs and business operators are clue-less about the running of the Council andare not benefiting from contracts or otherbusiness opportunities.Policies and regulations may be nec-essary, but they should not be hurting orhindering the very business that theyintend to protect and promote. As part of the solutions, members of the Council should communicate/connectmore with the people, while, businessowners should seek to better understandthe operations of the policy-makers.
The transformational leader
City Council needs to connectwith our business operators
