Despite substantial attention focusing on the nature and consequences of transformational leadership, extant research has not examined transformational leaders in the context of their administrative responsibilities. The current study takes a step in this direction by investigating the psychometric properties of 105 transformational bosses’ evaluations of their subordinates’ performance. Results suggest that transformational leaders’ ratings tend to be elevated and in agreement with other sources, yet these effects only held for their ratings of interpersonal performance dimensions. These results are discussed in the context of the information processing of transformational leaders and future directions of research are offered.
