Abstract

The effect of leadership on organizational climate was examined in this meta-analysis study. A total of 270 research studies were collected as a result of the review, out of which 99 were included in the meta-analysis. The 99 research studies were compiled to obtain a sample size of 43,698 subjects. The analysis results of the random effect model showed that leadership has a large positive effect on organizational climate . Of the moderators identified, such as leadership style /approach, climate type, publication type, year of publication and sample group /sector, it was found that only leadership style /approach was a moderator variable.
