Abstract:
Despite the mounting evidence that leadership can fuel the innovation behavior of employees, yet no study considered the psychological state of employees in such a relationship while Psychology is the primary root of human feelings and behavior. In this regard, this study uses the integrative approach of transformational leadership theory and positive psychology to uncover the pivotal role of positive psychological capital (PsyCap) and perceived effort-reward fairness in the relationship between transformational leadership (TFL) and employee’s innovation behavior. Data collected from 14 banking institutions operating in Rwanda (412 total respondents) were analyzed using structural equation modeling and findings support our hypothesized model

Abstract:
This paper investigated this disparity in the literature using Nigeria data from 1980 to 2016. In doing this, energy consumption was disaggregated, and their impacts on economic growth investigated using a modified Ordinary Least Square technique which allows for time gaps in the model. It was observed that only renewable energy impacted on economic growth in the long-run whereas non-renewable energy component impacted on economic growth in the short-run. Therefore, the study sees the impact of energy consumption on economic growth to be indistinct in Nigeria within the period under review. This further buttresses the need for improvement in electricity production and distribution in Nigeria. Given the importance of energy consumption on productivity, the study, therefore, suggests policies/measures that will bring about increasing the supply or improvement of energy production in the country.

Abstract:
The issue of leadership influences the performance in many areas and although the area has been researched the relationship between the style that leaders adopt and its impact on performance is not well known. This is because employees respond differently to every style and if you combine whole style it emerges that some styles yield better in certain sectors and poorly in certain areas. This is why this study sought to examine how leaders who adopt passive styles influence performance in the county government.

Abstract:
The primary objective of this paper is to test the hypothesis that the population age structure could contribute to carbon dioxide emission levels (environmental degradation) in Nigeria. Real income (Gross Domestic Product) was used as another determinant of CO2 emissions to test the EKC hypothesis in this study. Also, the autoregressive distributed lag (ARDL) econometric technique was applied in this paper to annual time series data from 1970 to 2018. The results show that age structure’s influence on the environment is significant. As expected, young adults (LOGYONG, i.e., ages 15-64) and children (LOGCHIL, i.e., ages 0-14) are environmentally intensive (due to energy-intensive goods consumed). But the older age group (LOGOLD i.e., ages 65 and above) exert a negative effect. The results of long-term estimation for the population structure-induced EKC hypothesis show that none of the coefficients of economic growth were statistically significant at any of the conventional levels. In other words, this finding did not prove the existence of EKC hypothesis. However, appropriate macroeconomic policies, technological innovations, and institutional developments are very important in maintaining a sound environment in Nigeria.

Abstract:

The results of this study suggested that procedural justice is positively related to work engagement, trust in leader and work engagement is positively related to OCB. Trust on leadership doesn’t mediating the relationship procedural justice to OCB, but work engagement is partially mediating the relationship procedural justice to OCB.
