Covid-19 has become a complex social challenge, both at the national and local levels. The pandemic has left government officials, both national and local and citizens alike, struggling to cope with the threat of infection and the risk of loss of life. Leaders respond to and deal with the Covid-19 pandemic with all its challenges and problems through regional policies, coordination or cooperation with the central government, and active participation of citizens. These responses and policies focus, among other things, on health, economic, social and humanitarian aspects. According to Hanafi et al. Leaders have a significant meaning for handling the Covid-19 pandemic Leaders have the opportunity to know more about the conditions for various issues handling the pandemic in the regions. The policies of these regional leaders also have the opportunity to be directly felt by residents at the local level (Hanafi et al., 2020). This study aims to analyze the influence of Transformational Leadership on Agile Governance. This study uses a quantitative method. The model used in this study is a causality model and to test the hypothesis proposed in this study, the analytical technique used is SEM (Structural Equation Modeling) which is operated through the SmartPLS program. The results of the study concluded that Hypothesis Testing H1: There is a positive and significant influence between Transformational Leadership and Agile Governance. Based on the data calculated using the Bootstrapping Technique, the statistical T value of the relationship between these two variables is 39,530 with a p value of 0.000. Thus, the hypothesis can be accepted, which means that there is a positive and significant influence between Transformational Leadership and Agile Governance.
