The study highlight the implications of Transformational Leadership, examining its role in predicting Organizational Performance. The study also investigates the mediating role of Organizational Learning, Organizational Innovation, and Organizational Culture. Although these mediate relationships are very important for improving Organizational Performance, prior studies have not usually examined them. A study was carried out on a sample including 314 Vietnamese manufacturing firms. The findings indicated that Transformational Leadership can foster Organizational Performance through Organizational Learning, Organizational Innovation, and Organizational Culture. Furthermore, Organizational Learning and Organizational Culture influence Organizational Performance positively, both directly and indirectly through Organizational Innovation. The findings revealed that Organizational Innovation has a positive relationship with Organizational Performance. (original abstract)
