Scientific studies on innovative behavior say that creating ideas, conveying ideas and realizing ideas are part of the basis for forming an assessment of a person's work or performance. New rules related to the values ​​of flexibility and independence that a teacher must have in providing educational material to students have recently encouraged them to upgrade contemporary thinking to keep up with the times. The question is, was the teacher born with the intended characteristics and values, or were there other conditional factors outside of him that had a significant influence? Based on these questions, this study will examine three factors that can influence the innovative character of an elementary school teacher in terms of the principal's transformational leadership style, organizational climate, and interpersonal communication.

This study used an inferential quantitative method involving 142 elementary school teacher respondents in Bolaang Mongondow Selatan Regency. The results of hypothesis testing state that there is a direct or indirect positive influence between the independent variables on the dependent variable. This means that the innovative behavior of elementary school teachers can be influenced by other factors from outside themselves, including the transformational leadership of the principal, organizational climate and also interpersonal communication.
