Pharmaceutical leadership in Ukraine: transformational and transactional





Abstract. The article is devoted to the analysis of B. Bass’s transformational and transactional leadership factors on the example of pharmacies and pharmaceutical organizations of Ukraine. Based on the survey results through the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) for managers and employees of the organizations mentioned, the application peculiarities of transformational, transactional and laissez-faire leadership in managing Ukrainian pharmacies and pharmaceutical organizations are researched. It was found out that the managers appreciated more their leadership qualities: the highest score related to the transactional leadership factor of a contingent reward, while the employees noted that their managers most often used such a transactional leadership factor as the management-by-exception (active). Research and practical recommendations as to the application of transformational, transactional and laissez-faire leadership principles in Ukrainian pharmaceutical organizations are proposed.
