This
study aimed at investigating the effect of transformational and transactional
leadership on education of employees’ creativity by considering the moderating
role of learning orientation and leader’s gender. The study hypotheses were
based on the impact of transformational and transactional leadership styles on
employees’ creativity. In this regard, the study questionnaire is distributed
among 548 people of department of education employees. Using structural
equation modeling the relationships between variables were investigated. The
findings showed that the female leaders were more effective than male leaders
on transforming schools. Moreover, the results showed that the learning
orientation moderates the connection of both leadership styles and employees’
creativity.
