Abstract: Transformational leaders have specific characteristics that inspire followers to feel a sense of meaning in work, which causes improved employee performance (Bass, 1985). These leaders care for every employee and support their individual needs, resulting in greater job satisfaction. Job satisfaction refers to one’s assessment of workplace and is determined by working conditions. Certain features of these conditions are related to both job satisfaction and work engagement, the most important of which is leadership style. This study aimed to investigate the mediating role of work engagement in the relationship between transformational leadership and job satisfaction. The study data was collected using MLQ (Bass & Avolio, 1995), MSQ (Weiss et al., 1967) and UWES (Schaufeli & Bakker, 2003). Structural equation modeling was used as a quantitative research method. The data was analyzed using LISREL. Results demonstrated that the effect of transformational leadership on job satisfaction was fully mediated by work engagement.
