Özet

In this original paper, we aimed to find the impact of spiritual leadership (SL) on organizational learning capacity (OLC), which may then improve the organizational development. To perform the study, we conducted research with 578 employees in metalworking manufacturing. We measured SL in dimensions of vision, hope/faith, altruistic love, meaning/calling and membership. After the data analysis, we determined that OLC has positive significant correlation with each of SL dimensions (at 0.000 level), however, the total explained variance of OLC - depending on SL- has come out a very low value (0.09), which the businesses should consider while planning their development processes.
