Abstract: This study employs structural equations modeling via PLS to analyze the 392 valid questionnaires in order to assess the proposed model that is based on the transformational leadership characteristics to identify its effect on the performance of organizations in the government sector in the United Arab Emirates. The main independent constructs in the model are idealized influence, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, and individualized consideration. The dependent construct is organizational performance as a second-order construct to learning & growth, and internal process. The study will describe relations among the various constructs. Our work has improved our insight in the importance of transformational leadership. Results indicated that all four independent variables significantly predicted performance with a various percentage. The proposed model explained 46.5% of the variance in performance.
