Many treatments for persons with severe mental illness are provided by mental health teams.
Team members work better when led by effective leaders.
Research conducted by organizational psychologists, and validated on mental health teams, have identified a variety of skills that are useful for these leaders.
Bass (1990,1997) identified two sets of especially important skills related to transformational and transactional leadership.
Leaders using transformational skills help team members to view their work from more elevated perspectives and develop innovative ways to deal with work-related problems.
Skills related to transformational leadership promote inspiration, intellectual stimulation, individual consideration, participative decision making, and elective delegation.
Mental health and rehabilitation teams must not only develop creative and innovative programs, they must maintain them over time as a series of leader-team member transactions.
Transactional leadership skills include goal-setting, feedback, and reinforcement strategies which help team members maintain effective programs.
