Abstract

The effect of leadership on organizational burnout (OB) was examined in this meta-analysis study. A total of 97 research studies were collected as a result of the review activity, out of which 37 were included in the meta-analysis. The 37 research studies were compiled to obtain a sample size of 17,368 subjects. The analysis results of the random effect model showed that leadership has a small negative effect on OB. Of the moderators identified for the study, such as sample group /sector, leadership style /approach, publication type, publication year, and the leadership and burnout scales used in the research studies, only the leadership scale was found to be a moderator variable.
