To autocratic style to friendly and contemporary style

 To run organizations smoothly, effectively and
efficiently, the most valuable and indispensable factor organizations need is
human resource (Mosadragh, 2003). Well-qualified and capable personnel are
important in context of achieving goals and objectives of an organization. The
success of an organization depends on the hard working, loyal and involved
managers and employees. In this modern era where world has become a global
village, firms are considered to be competitive on the basis of competence of
their human resources. It is somewhat a difficult task to handle people who are
physically, psychologically, culturally and ethnically different from each
other. Management of employees is largely dependent on the quality of
leadership organizations have (Albion & Gagliardi, 2007). Leadership is a
bond which makes people to work together. Organizations at present are more
concerned about understanding, development and improvement of their leadership.
Transformational leadership is a modern approach towards leadership. Hall et
al. (2008) defined transformational leadership as a system of changing and
transforming people. If leaders want to produce a positive influence on
individuals, groups and organizations, then leadership should be broadened from
old rigid autocratic style to friendly and contemporary style (Dess et al.,
1998). Modern leaders perfectly adopt an attitude that support employees,
provide them a vision, cultivate hope, encourage them to think innovatively,
individualized consideration and broaden the communication. All these factors
are the main features of transformational leadership style leading to boost up
organizational strengths and increasing level of job satisfaction and
organizational commitment in workforce. Job satisfaction is the degree to which
a person is pleased or satisfied with his/her job or work. Success of
organizations highly depends on its workforce. More
