The purpose of this study is to analyze the causal relationship between individual creativity and organizational creativity by focusing on transformational and emotional leadership amid various factors that bring about innovation to organizations. The results of the analysis show that transformational leadership had a significant effect on individual creativity, while individual creativity had a significant effect on organizational innovation. While emotional leadership, which, of late, has been receiving growing attention, did not have a significant positive effect on individual creativity, it did have a significant positive effect on organizational innovation. In particular, the core factor that was responsible for transformational leadership to affect individual creativity was charisma, and the core factor that was responsible for emotional leadership to affect organizational innovation was self-management skills. This may have reflected the leader’s personal emotions and affective characteristics as well as robust and thorough self-management principles. It is, therefore necessary to focus more on this fact.
