To test the research hypotheses, a structural equation model was conducted, in addition to descriptive statistics that provided background on the respondents.FindingsThe findings indicate that transformational and transactional leadership relate positively to organizational performance. The results also support the argument that intellectual capital and innovation played mediating roles in transformational and transactional leadership and organizational performance.Practical implicationsThe present study provides managers with empirical proof that possessing strong intellectual capital in its three dimensions seems to help the banking sector in Jordan to reinforce their ability to generate both radical and incremental innovation.
