Abstract

The aim of this study is to explore the influence of inclusive leadership on organizational citizenship behaviour for the environment. This relationship is mediated by the relational silence. Environmental patterns, innovation and change has considerable influence on the organizational working environment. Individuals and groups are trying to respond these challenges in their own ways. This research study is also an attempt to explore such mechanisms which are used by organizations to engage in activities required for environmental protection. Structural Equation modeling (SEM) was used to examine the influence of inclusive leadership on organizational citizenship behaviour for environment (OCBE) along with the mediation of relational silence. For this purpose, data was analyzed through both descriptive and inferential statistics. Results of research study disclosed that inclusive leadership has a noteworthy positive impact on organizational citizenship behaviour for environment (OCBE) whereas inclusive leadership has a negative correlation with relational silence. Moreover, relational silence is also negatively correlated with organizational citizenship behaviour for environment and it partially mediates the connection of inclusive leadership with OCBE. These results are helpful in understanding the influence of inclusive leadership on organizational citizenship behaviour for environment. In this regard, the mediating role of relational silence is first time observed theoretically enriching the existing literature and giving new ways for practicing inclusive leadership style in the organization.
