"Two popular leadership models were examined: transformational/transactional leadership
and leader member exchange (LMX). The aim was to assess which model is the most
appropriate to use when coaching a baseball team to build teamwork. While the transformational/transactional model was found to be sufficient to determine coaching behaviors
towards the team as an entity and in inspiring the team, it was not found to address sufficiently
the actual workings of the coach-player relationship. For this purpose, the LMX model was
considered to be more useful. The LMX model also included more specific mechanisms for
the improvement of teamwork than the transformational/transactional model."
