The impact of personality domains and work experience in the transformational leadership style, providing new evidence of the causal relationship between both constructs is evaluated. The research had a quantitative approach with a no-experimental design, cross-sectional and correlational- causal scope. A survey was applied to 368 professionals of several Master of Business Administration programs in Ecuador. The instrument called Revised Personality Inventory was used to measure the five domains of personality: (a) extraversion, (b) agreeableness, (c) conscientiousness, (d) neuroticism, and (e) openness to experience. On the other hand, the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) was the instrument used to measure the transformational leadership style. To analyze the data correlation analysis and a multivariate regression model were used. The results highlight that extraversion and conscientiousness domains proved to be the most important in the projection of transformational leadership style.
