A leader is a person who has the potential to mobilize individuals who want

to struggle for common goals and shared aspirations. Leaders have some key

roles in achieving organizational goals. Today, change and transformation

occur much faster than in the past. Particularly in parallel with technological

innovations, this change is an important factor in making parallel innovations

when organizations continue their sustainable competitive advantages. For

this reason, the roles of leaders, which are the most important driving forces

of the organizations, in this change and transformation are more important

than the role models. In this context, this study aims to investigate the

effects of organizational citizenship behaviors, unethical organizational

behaviors, and the effects of integration on work. In addition, the mediating

role of job meaning in the process has been examined. It has been found

that current work findings and transformational leaders are influential in

work integration and organizational citizenship behaviors, and also act as a

partial means of making meaningful work in the model.
