This study explored the impact of transformational and transactional leadership on middle-manager performance when resilience plays a mediating role in the relationship. This study reviewed different studies that have tested this relationship. Data were collected from a sample of 443 employees (middle-management post, between 30 and 55 years of age). The sample responded to a survey that included three scales: leadership, resilience, and performance.

The analysis indicated that resilience was found to partially mediate the relationship between transformational and transactional leadership and performance
