The effectiveness of educational institutions in this competitive and knowledge-driven environment can be made better if they value and recognize their faculty members by providing them with conducive atmosphere at their workplaces. It can be achieved if educational institutions bring qualitative changes through promotion of sound quality of work life (QWL). QWL is vital not only for improving employee performance, but it also helps in enhancing institutional progress. In this regard, the role of academic leaders can be very effective in promoting sound culture in their institutions, which would foster commitment and satisfaction level of their staff. In the present study, an attempt has been made to examine the relationship between transformational leadership and QWL in sample study institutions. Moreover, the study will also analyse the impact of transformational leadership on QWL. The respondents of the study comprise of 143 faculty members taken from five constituent colleges in Srinagar district. The data whatsoever collected were analysed using SPSS 20.0. Version. The findings of the study revealed that there exists a positive relationship between transformational leadership and QWL. Moreover, the results of the study revealed that transformational leadership positively and significantly influences QWL in sample study institutions. The study suggests that transformational leadership needs to be further strengthened in order to enhance QWL in sample study institutions.
