This research was conducted to determine the effect of servant leadership behaviors of managers in the health sector on organizational identification and job satisfaction. Servant leadership is a type of leadership that allows the development of the people it leads while exhibiting leadership behavior in general. Organizational identification is the integration of employees with the main identity of the institution they work for. Job satisfaction, on the other hand, is a pleasant state that the employee feels as a result of the success of the job. In the research, the online survey method was applied in accordance with the principle of voluntariness. In the first part of the questionnaire, there are five questions about demographic characteristics. In the second part, the "Servant Leadership" scale developed by Kılıç and Aydın (2016) was used. The scale consists of seven questions. In the third part, the "Organizational Identification" scale, which contains statements about organizational identification developed by Fettahlıoğlu and Koca, was used.

Servant leadership (β= 0.48 p=0.00) and organizational identification (β= 0.23, p=0.00) positively affect job satisfaction According to the analysis results, organizational identification has a mediating role in the effect of servant leadership on job satisfaction (β= 0.09) and it was determined that servant leadership further increased the positive effect on job satisfaction (β= 0.57, p=0.00).
