Full Range Leadership Model

Leadership is best assessed on a spectrum and we do this using the Full Range Leadership model. This model gives us 9 leadership behaviours that can be measured and modeled or avoided.



Transformational Leadership is the ability to provide shared values and a vision for the future for the work group.  This is achieved through 4 behaviours:


Idealised Influence:
This involves inspiring followers to achieve goals beyond their self-interests, being a positive role model and creating a vision that is perceived worthy of effort.  These leaders are respected and admired by subordinates.


Individualised Consideration:
This involves paying attention to the needs and concerns of followers, developing and helping the follower to grow by promoting learning, and being concerned with the individual.


Intellectual Stimulation:
This is the creation of curiosity and innovation within the teams, challenge the norms and traditional ways of doing things and eliciting follower input.


Inspirational Motivation:

is the arousing and inspiring of followers with a clear and articulate vision which the follower wants to achieve

Transactional Leadership is based on some transaction, such as exchanging money for work. 

This is modelled in 2 behaviours:

  • Contingent reward: is where leaders agree with followers the tasks to be completed and clearly articulate performance expectations in exchange for rewards.
  • Management by exception is a corrective form of leadership and measures the extent that a leader intervenes with the follower.
    • Active is when the leader seeks out errors or issue in the output and then acting
    • Passive is the leader waiting for things to go wrong before becoming active.
