Abstract
The effectiveness of a leader in a Community-Based Organisation (CBO) are to empower their
followers depend on the extent of their actions. An effective leader will able to influence their followers to
actively participate in an economic-generating activity that would transform their lifestyles for the better. Based
on this premise, a study was conducted to examine how the Transactional leadership style acts as a moderator in
the relationship between participation and economic empowerment of PWPK members. For the purpose of this
research, 366 members from 60 PWPK associations were selected as respondents using the cluster multistage
sampling method. The data were collected through questionnaires and analysed using the Stuctural Equation
Modelling (SEM) aided by AMOS software. The findings show that the Transactional leadership style has a
moderating effect on the relationship between participation in decision-making and economic empowerment,
but not on participation in implementation and receipt of benefits. As CBOs, the PWPK have to be empowered
from the leadership aspect in order or the associations to function as a medium to improve their standard of
living via economic activities.

Key words: empowerment, participation, Community-based Organisation, leadership
