The purpose of this study is to study and analyze the impact of transformational leadership style on the performance of Islamic banks, using job motivation as an intermediate variable.

The leader can influence his followers, and their executors need to execute orders without using coercive means. In this way, subordinates can voluntarily follow the requirements of the organization and perform their duties by recommending leaders. Transformational leaders are not only aware of the needs of their subordinates, but they are also trying to increase the needs of lower levels to those of existing levels.

The results show that transformational leadership styles have a significant impact on job motivation.
