LEADERSHIP STYLE AND EMPLOYEESâ€™ PERFORMANCE IN PAKISTAN: THE MEDIATING ROLE OF ORGANISATIONAL COMMITMENT
AbstractThe paper investigates the critical role of organisational commitment between leadership style and employeesâ€™ performance. Generally, the relationship between leadership style and the organisational performance has been discussed widely but ignoring the employeesâ€™ performance. It has been accepted that the organisational commitment leads to higher employee performance but the existing literature has not focused much on this view. A conceptual model has been developed which links the constructs together.The model reveals the missing link of organisational commitment between leadership style and employeesâ€™ performance. The sample of 242 was collected from the managers and employees of manufacturing and service organisations. The finding confirmed that organisational commitment acted as a mediator between the leadership style and employeesâ€™ performance.
