Abstract


Previous research shows that transformational leadership is an influential factor in stimulating organizational citizenship behaviour in many industries eventhough the effect of specific transformational leadership variables are not the same. Our study filled this gap by evaluating the effect of idealized attributes, idealized behaviors, inspirational motivation, intellectual stimulation, individualized consideration on employee’s organizational citizenship behaviour. A sample of 800 nurses and medical officers were selected from ten hospitals across Ethiopia as the case study.  The study was opened to all clinical staff of the hospital hence respondents were randomly picked for the study. We observed that all dimensions of transformational leadership were positively correlated with organizational citizenship behaviour. Policy implications for the healthcare sector in Ethiopia have been provided to support the next phase of the health sector development programs.
