Abstract: Transformational leadership has some important implications for individuals, groups and companies. Corporate governance is a framework concept that helps companies to meet the new conditions introduced by globalisation. Companies are trying to be competitive through their leadership and corporate governance practices. This study aims to determine the impact of transformational leadership and corporate governance on business performance. Research hypotheses were drawn from the related literatures and tested through the data collected from managers selected from top managers of 91 companies which are listed in the biggest company in Turkey. Data was analysed via Smart PLS program.

The findings obtained from this research provide the evidence that transformational leadership is an important determinant of corporate governance. Corporate governance improves business performance. The findings were discussed in relation to theory and practice.
