Abstract This paper examines the relationship between the leadership dimensions associated with Bass’s (1985) model, and the ‘stimulant’ and ‘obstacle’ determinants of the work environment for creativity. There are three major findings in this research. First, the relationship between transformational and transactional leadership and the ‘stimulant’ determinants of the work environment for creativity is significant and positive. Second, the ‘obstacle’ determinants of the work environment for creativity are negatively related with both transactional and transformational leadership. Finally, transformational leadership is more strongly correlated than transactional leadership with the ‘stimulant’ determinants of the work environment for creativity. Thus, transformational leadership is an increasingly important aspect in today’s organisations in creating a corporate culture and the work environment that stimulates employees’ creativity and innovation.
