Data were collected by questionnaires and analyzed using the Partial Least Square (PLS). The results showed that behavioral leadership directly affects organizational innovation (β=.38; p=.00);individual creativity affects organizational innovation (β=.35; p=.02); and intrinsic motivation mediates the effect of behavioral leadership on individual creativity (β = .39; p = .00). However, individual creativity was not found to mediate the effect of behavioral leadership on organizational innovation (β=.14; p=.23).The findings from this research could be applied to enhance organizational innovation by developing intrinsic motivation, and individual creativity among faculty members in higher education, and creating a favorable work environment.
