Abstract
This study investigated the relationships between Transformational Leadership (TLS), effectiveness and commitment, trust and connectedness when working from home during a pandemic. It was predicted that there is a mediation effect of trust and connectedness on the relationships between TLS and commitment, as well as effectiveness. 86 employees of the personnel consulting firm CareeerTeam filled out a questionnaire. Two parallel mediation analysis in SPSS were conducted. The results indicate no mediation effect. There was no relationship found between TLS and commitment, and neither between TLS and effectiveness. This relationship was not mediated by trust or connectedness. An effect was found of TLS on connectedness, as well as an effect of connectedness on commitment and effectiveness. Limitations and recommendations for future research are discussed.
