Nowadays innovation and creativity are seen as the key things for keeping the leading position in the world markets. Creativity is the constituent that improves the organisations’ capability to preserve their competitive advantage as well as to stay ahead of their competitors. In order to achieve the required innovation and creativity, leadership style is an important issue (Adair, J.E. (2007). This article discusses the relationship between innovation and leadership as part of internal organisation, specifically, three leadership theories and intrinsic motivation, by using thematic analysis (Braub and Clarke, 2006) and systematic literature review methodology (Tranfield et. al. 2003). 20 articles that were published between 2009 and 2014 have been analysed. As a result, seven prevalent themes are found out. These are creativity and innovation in the organisations, different innovation perspectives, different leadership styles, individual creativity, team innovation and intrinsic motivation and leader follower relationship.
