This study aims to reveal the mediating role of innovative organizations in the effect of school administrators’ agile leadership behaviors on entrepreneurial teacher behaviors. Based on the relationship between the variables, a model was proposed and tested. Before testing the structural equation modeling (SEM) model, the relational survey model was used to determine the relationship between the variables and the model. The study group consists of 479 teachers working in the Kartal, Tuzla, Maltepe, and Sultanbeyli districts of Istanbul in 2023. According to the research findings, the agile leadership characteristics of school principals positively affect the entrepreneurial behaviors of teachers and the innovative structure of schools. As a result of the analysis of the SEM model, innovative organizations play a partial mediating role between agile leadership behaviors of school principals and entrepreneurial teacher behaviors. This research contributes both theoretically and practically to the effect of agile leadership on teachers’ entrepreneurial behaviors and innovative organizational structures, and the effect of innovative organizations on entrepreneurial teacher behaviors. In light of the findings, implications related to agile leadership, teachers ’ entrepreneurial behaviors, and innovative organizational structures are discussed, and suggestions are made for future research
