This study seeks to explore the relationship between transformational leadership and employee’s readiness towards change, and the moderating effect of employee growth mindset. Furthermore, this study aims to look at the direct relationship between employee growth mindset and perceived stress during a specific change context, namely, the pandemic COVID-19. For this study, a sample of 159 respondents was obtained. The results show that transformational leadership and employees’ readiness towards change are positively related, however, not significant. Further, there was found no support for the moderating influence of growth mindset. Finally, there was detected a negative relationship between growth mindset and stress, however, the results were not significant. Directions for future research and implications are also discussed.
