Abstract: 
In this study, leadership style perceptions, emotion regulation abilities, and organizational performance perceptions of employees in the banking sector, and mediating effect of emotion regulation on the relationship of performance and leadership styles were measured. To test the model, a questionnaire was applied to the banking sector employees working in the Diyarbakır province of Turkey. As a result of the Structural Equation Model (SEM), emotion regulation mediates between performance and transformational leadership. The relationship between performance, transactional leadership style, and laissez-fair leadership style was not significant. A mediating effect of emotion regulation between organizational performance and leadership perception was examined by the same model. Also, some differences were found in terms of demographical variables.
