Abstract

The current study was aimed to test the mediational effects of gratitude and life satisfaction on the link between transformational leadership and innovative behavior. In order to examine the hypothesis, 374 employees were sampled. In structural equation modeling, the hypothetical model explaining the structural paths and the fit of the model were evaluated. The results showed that gratitude and life satisfaction mediated the relations between transformational leadership and innovative behavior. Additionally, the associations between transformational leadership and gratitude was moderated by organizationally-prescribed perfectionism. The implications and limitations of the study, and suggestions for future studies are discussed.
