This research aims to explore the effectiveness of transactional and transformational leadership styles in creating effective Leader-Member Exchange relationships in the organization, particularly in IT companies. The research was carried out in Indonesia during the year 2020. Semi-structured interviews were conducted on 149 respondents over 12 months between February 2020 and November 2020 in 119 IT companies located in major cities of Indonesia. The results of this study indicate that transformational leadership is more holistic than transactional leadership. In developing a high-quality leader-member relationship, the personal touch of a leader is needed to inspire his/ her followers to perform beyond expectations and sacrifice to surpass their self-interests for organizational interests. Moreover, to create a warmer and friendlier work atmosphere a leader should be more aware of the out-group existence and he/she supposes to build a relationship reciprocally not based on personal preferences, but rather based on the recent and future potential, and also assigns tasks to those who have skill and readiness. The challenge of this paper is that difficult to generalize the result as this paper approaches the problems from a qualitative stance. This paper contributes to the existing literature on how effective transformational leadership in generating high-quality leader-member relationships influences members’ job performance and job satisfaction in an organization.
