A self-administered questionnaire was used to collect the data. Completed and usable questionnaires were received from 103 managers in charge of departments (accounting and finance, human resource management, sales and marketing, and customer services. The transformational leadership style (TLS) and performance were measured using instruments adapted from previous studies. The results revealed that superiors' TLS was positively associated with the performance of subordinate managers in charge of the above mentioned departments.
