Professor Hülya Gündüz Çekmecelioğlu, Associate Professor Gönül Kaya Özbağ

The aim of this study is to analyze the relationship between transformational leadership and psychological empowerment in a sample of 270 respondents. Four dimensions of transformational leadership have been proposed as an instrument to enhance individuals’ perception of psychological empowerment. The findings confirm a positive link among idealized influence, intellectual stimulation and psychological empowerment. By linking each dimension of transformational leadership to four dimensions of psychological empowerment, the study draws paths from leadership behaviour to employee empowerment and thus the current findings provide valuable insights both for leadership and empowerment literature.
