From the Paper:

"Transformational leadership is especially important at the present time since it inspires and supports nurse who work under heavy workloads and with numerous sources of stress. Because of transformational leadership, nurses realize that a new image and model of nursing is possible. Even under such strenuous conditions, the leader with inspirational motivation is able to energize the members of the organization (Beugre, 2006). This is possible because the transformational leader is able to impact on others' perceptions of themselves and also on their degree of trust and job satisfaction. The result is seen in a correlation between transformational leadership and organizational performance (Boerner, 2007)."
