It was hypothesized that transformational leadership is positively related to followers empowerment and this relationship is mediated by followers’ social identity.

All four factors of followers’ psychological empowerment are positively related to transformational leadership and to followers personal and social identity. In addition, the relationship between transformational leadership and follower empowerment is mediated by followers social identity.
