The analysis technique uses the Structural Equetion Model (SEM) with SmartPLS. The total sample is 95 heads of construction service companies in DKI Jakarta. Data were collected through distributing questionnaires. The results of the analysis show that transformational leadership in the construction service industry during the pandemic is at a high level. The results of testing the transformational leadership model show that each dimension is significant in composing transformational leadership. The four significant dimensions recommended are idealized influence, intellectual stimulation, individual consideration and inspirational motivation. Among the four dimensions, idealized influence and individual consideration are the dominant dimensions, this shows that during the Covid-19 pandemic, the influence of charismatic leadership role models became the main characteristics for companies that managed to survive, at the same time paying attention to each individual employee is indispensable. The practice of transformational leadership in companies is manifested in the transformation of information processes, new technology, and adaptation of techniques, communication, and data management utilizing digital media.
