Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between Transformational, Autocratic and Laissez-faire leadership styles of Divisional secretaries in Colombo Districtand employees’ Organizational Citizenship Behaviors (OCB).

The study consists of two core concepts: leadership behaviors and OCB. The sample population for the study was drawn from 280 employees working for divisional secretaries in Colombo District. A self-administered questionnaire was developed by combining two instruments. Two hundred and eighty participants completed multifactor leadership (MLQ) and OCB questionnaires.

The statistical results of the study revealed that there is a positive and significant relationship between Transformational leadership style and OCB. Other two variables namely Aautocraticstyle and Laissez-faire leadership style are negatively correlated with OCB. These results emphasized that only transformational leadership style play a highly significant role on OCB and other two styles are negatively associated with OCB. These findings are consistent with the previous research studies.
