Leadership Styles, Employee Satisfaction, Employees Performance


This study aims to examine perceptions of leadership style among transporta-
tion sector employees as a possible mediator between the supervisor’s leadership style and

internal and external aspects of employee satisfaction. The Multifactor Leadership Ques-
tionnaire (MLQ) was distributed to employees of transportation sector PIA and Railway in Multan, asking them to evaluate their supervisor’s style of leadership. Employees were asked to report their perceptions of leadership style, their satisfaction level and about their performance by using the scale. The research resulted in mixed findings, i.e., task leadership has an influence on the performance of employees but the relational leadership does not influence the performance rating in the transportation sector. Employees’ satisfaction has its positive impact on the rating of employee performance.
