Total tourist arrivals increasing by 21.6% in 2010 compared to 2009 show the need for homestay programme services increase every year. Thus, the commitment of each individual or member of the community is essential to ensure the success of activities. One of the main factors contributing to the increasing of the commitment is through leadership. This study aims to examine the influences of transformational leadership towards organizational commitment among homestay operators in Malaysia. Four dimensions of transformational leadership has been used such as individual influences, motivation inspiration, intellectual stimulation and individual consideration.

(1979) and modified by Sharifah Noraida (2009) was used to measure organizational commitment. This study involved 304 respondents from the homestay programme in Malaysia. Result from correlation analysis showed that all the dimensions of transformational leadership has significant relationship with organizational commitment.
