This paper examines the effectiveness of transformational leadership in changing education systems and the rapidly evolving and expanding roles of educational leaders. Innovation, rather than the mere improvement of existing processes and structures, is one of the most important elements of an organization that a leader can help to promote. Whether it is a factory that produces tangible products or a learning organization involved in training individuals in a wide range of disciplines, leadership and management approaches that enhance innovation are of vital importance. Effective and enlightened leaders help organizations to improve and to evolve in innovative new ways (Mufeed, 2018). The traditional concept of leadership provides a rigid framework that may no longer be effective in an increasingly complex and interconnected international society. Effective educational leadership requires shared responsibility, advanced critical thinking skills, flexibility in decision-making processes, open channels of communication throughout an organization, and close collaboration with a wide range of stakeholders (Eliophotou-Menon & Ioannou, 2016). Transformational leadership, which was first developed in the private sector, is now being employed successfully in the management and rapid transformation of educational institutions.
