Year 2023, Volume: 4 Issue: 2, 46 - 51, 18.10.2023

Abstract

Human resources in the organization are a source of competitive advantage, and it was found that 90% of the success of modern organizations is due to organizational commitment (OC). On
the other hand, transformational leadership (TL) is among the most significant forms of modern leadership, but many leaders still struggle to survive using traditional leadership techniques.
Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the impacts of transformational leadership on organizational commitment between the heads of administrative departments in a number of
general directorates in Duhok Governorate. Samples of 130 persons from the head direction of the administration department of the directorate general of Duhok province were selected using
convenience sampling. In total, 130 questionnaires were distributed; a total of 124 valid questionnaires were collected, and 95.38% of the participants responded. The Statistical Package for
the Social Sciences Statistics software was utilized for data analysis. The results of linear regression show that transformational leadership has a positive and significant impact on employees’
organizational commitment. Also, the average score of transformational leadership and organizational commitment in the sample group is significantly higher than the average level of society
at the 99% confidence level.
