Transformational leaders are often regarded as change agents who do not only manage change but are also the initiators thereof. One university of technology in South Africa is currently undergoing restructuring which inevitably calls upon leaders to exhibit transformational leadership behaviours with a view to initiating and managing such change effectively. The aim of this research was to establish the frequency of exhibition of transformational leadership and its behaviours and to ascertain its level amongst the middle management cohort in the university so as to determine the extent to which these leaders would be able to both initiate and manage the restructuring exercise. The research design involved administering the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) to 51 leaders (n = 51). The results of the MLQ do confirm that even though some transformational leadership behaviours are lacking in the repertoire of some leaders, they would be able to manage and initiate the restructuring exercise successfully.
