This study explores the nature of the relationship between transformational leadership and two work-related attitudes, organizational commitment and job satisfaction, by comparing Kenya and the United States. The results show that transformational leadership has a strong and positive effect on organizational commitment and job satisfaction in both cultures. Simultaneous factor analyses in several populations (SIFASP), using AMOS maximum likelihood procedure, provides evidence of conceptual and measurement equivalence for all three measures (transformational leadership, organizational commitment, and job satisfaction) employed in this study.
