Leadership styles; particularly transformational and transactional, should be given further prominence in organisations, as there is evidence to support, their dimensions influence organizational innovation, and manipulating leadership behaviours can affect the climate for innovation. Further research is required to empirically explore the relationship between transformational and transactional leadership styles and their impact on the organisational climate most conducive to creativity and innovation. The purpose of this study is to understand how and in which ways transformational and transactional types, potentially impact the climate for innovation at the organisational level and to propose a direction for further research.
