Following hitherto published research on the positive outcomes of transformational leadership; I hypothesize that transformational leadership leads to higher team satisfaction. However, as suggested by Bass (1999), the mechanisms underlying the relationships between transformational leadership and the outcomes are still worthy of further examination. Thus, in this research, I tested psychological safety as mediating variables on the relationship between team perceptions of supervisors' transformational leadership and team satisfaction in the team level analysis. Based on the data from 83 teams mainly working on companies, the research shows that team perceptions of supervisors' transformational leadership is positively related to team satisfaction. In addition, psychological safety mediates the relationship between transformational leadership and team satisfaction. Finally, the implication for future research and managerial are discussed.
