  • Guest editorial: leadership and organizational development in Africa
    • Pages: 254 - 261
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 254-261, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to preview contributions on leadership and organizational development in the African context, covered in this special issue of the African Journal of Business and Economic Studies. Design/methodology/approach Summaries of the underlying theoretical/conceptual and/or empirical frameworks, as well as key findings for each paper, were outlined in order to provide insights of each paper’s thematic contribution. Findings Paper 1 identified four basic modes of understanding organizational culture which provides a unique and expanded view on pursuing research in the field. Paper 2 found that managers use authentic and transactional leadership skills to cultivate and nurture the creativities of employees toward increased performances. Paper 3 found the interaction between authentic leaders and followers as inducing high levels of moral and ethical behaviors in followers. Paper 4 found that employee engagement and affective commitment minimize employees’ attrition, irrespective of leadership styles. Paper 5 found that, managers can enhance organizational development by creating an atmosphere for innovation development, and being involved in its implementation. Paper 6 found that leaders who are emotionally intelligent positively evoke subordinates’ citizenship behaviors. Paper 7 identified three distinct and interrelated archetypes of managerial role preferences (i.e. change agents, affective leaders, and result-oriented realists) needed by leaders in their administrative practices. Originality/value The papers provide new insights, in terms of thematic learning and knowledge, which add to the understanding of the contemporary Afrocentric perspective on leadership and organizational development, especially, the dialogue of management activities that promote the relational, critical and constructionist perspectives on leadership and organizational development.

  • Organizational culture: a foundational perspective
    • Pages: 262 - 273
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 262-273, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to perform a typological analysis of research orientations in the field of organizational culture (OC) in order to provide a broad, original perspective on the nature of research in this field, beyond the current quantitative/qualitative dichotomy. Design/methodology/approach Documentary analysis, consisting of a content analysis of an appropriate and conceptually convenient selection of 200 source publications, was conducted. The analysis was performed in terms of four fundamental knowledge orientations and methodologies. Findings An analysis and description of the chosen set of examples for each of the four types of knowledge showed that, as with other areas in the field of organizational behavior and management (and also other scholarly disciplines), the typology finds clear expression in the area of OC. Research limitations/implications In view of the aim and originality of the present paper, the sample size employed is not a worrying factor as sufficient and clear examples of each of the four basic types of research orientations have been provided. It is recommended that the broadly applicable knowledge (and by implication research) orientations that were introduced here, be considered by OC researchers. The analysis of fundamental approaches to research provides an inclusive perspective on the nature of different ways of studying and understanding OC. This should assist in expanding both scholarly and practitioner horizons. It is concluded that the analysis of research in the field of OC in terms of fundamental types of human knowledge provides a unique and expanded view on research in this area. Practical implications All stakeholders in the field of human resource management could benefit from taking cognizance of a broader perspective of knowledge development in the field of OC. The four-fold framework could also be utilized as a valuable source for restructuring and teaching of research methodology programs and courses in institutions of higher education, especially concerning the general need for greater attention to: theoretical (type I), and evaluation (type IV) research in management and organizational behavior. Originality/value The analysis of fundamental knowledge orientations provides an original and encompassing perspective on the nature of different approaches to the study and understanding of OC.

  • Relational impact of authentic and transactional leadership styles on
           employee creativity
    • Pages: 274 - 295
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 274-295, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to explore how authentic leadership and transactional leadership styles in Ghanaian telecom firms influence employees’ creativity, and the effect that climate for innovation and work-related flow have on such influencing relationship. Design/methodology/approach Guided by the implicit theory of leadership, and using questionnaires, data were collected from 335 employees in five mining firms and analyzed descriptively and inferentially. Findings It was found that managers in the telecom firms use transactional leadership styles and authentic leadership styles to enhance employees’ creativity. The work climate fostered employees’ creativity and encouraged their innovation. The prevalence of work-related flow enhanced employees’ job performances. The innovative climate mediated the effect of authentic leadership on employees’ creativity, but moderated the effect of transactional leadership on the employees’ creativity. Work-related flow also moderated the effects of both authentic and transactional leadership styles on employee creativity. It is concluded that managers in telecom firms influence their followers’ creativity by altering their leadership styles in accordance with the given situation to achieve organizational goals. Research limitations/implications The study sample was drawn from a single sub-sector of the Ghanaian economy. This represents a limitation, for which the findings cannot be generalized. Replications and extensions of the study in different industrial sectors will help test the robustness and generalizability of the findings. Originality/value This study has shown that managers of telecom firms in Ghana can cultivate and nurture the creativities of their employees toward increased performances by creating conducive psychosocial work climate that supports innovativeness, and use the requisite authentic and transactional leadership skills in the conduct of their managerial functions.

  • Authentic leadership as a contemporary leadership model applied in Nigeria
    • Pages: 296 - 313
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 296-313, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the extent to which each dimension of authentic leadership (AL) is related with employee organizational commitment (OC) and assessment of leadership effectiveness for employees in Nigeria and to investigate the moderating effects of contingent reward leadership behaviors on these relationships. By testing the dimensions of AL with employee outcomes, this study provides further validity and empirical evidence to the theoretical structure of AL theory across cultures. Design/methodology/approach This empirical study used cross-sectional survey data collected from a sample of 212 Nigerian employees from 16 organizations across various sectors. Findings The results of hierarchical regression analysis of this study showed a positive relationship between AL behaviors and the outcome variables of OC and perceived leader effectiveness (LE) among Nigerian employees. The moderation result shows that the leader’s contingent reward behaviors reduce the effects of the internal moral perspective dimension of AL. As authentic leaders interact with followers and followers experience high levels of moral and ethical behaviors, contingent rewards become less important to followers. Practical implications Leadership effectiveness and OC are desirable organizational outcomes across cultures. From a practical standpoint, the results indicate several authentic dimensions are related to OC and leadership effectiveness among Nigerian employees. This extends the applicability of AL into the African countries. Particularly, it provides additional insight into a contemporary leadership model that can positively impact the leadership development in Nigeria. While the interactive effects of contingent reward were limited, they do suggest that some combinations of behaviors should be considered to effectively meet situational needs. Originality/value This is the first study that examines the relationship of the components that constitute AL with OC and perceived LE in the context of Nigeria, a major African nation.

  • Linking transformational leadership to turnover intention in the public
           sector
    • Pages: 314 - 337
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 314-337, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine how employee engagement and affective commitment mediate the relationship between transformational leadership and voluntary turnover intention. The study also investigates the moderating role of psychological climate in the relationship between affective organisational commitment and voluntary turnover intention. Design/methodology/approach This study employed a cross-sectional design as its framework. In addition, hierarchical linear modelling with bootstrapping analysis was conducted using data from a sample of 336 employees in a large public sector organisation in Ghana. Findings The results showed that transformational leadership positively influenced engagement, which was then negatively related to employee turnover intention. Furthermore, employee engagement was found to mediate the link between transformational leadership and affective organisational commitment, whereas both employee engagement and affective organisational commitment were found to mediate the link between transformational leadership and voluntary turnover intention. Finally, psychological climate was found to moderate the link between affective commitment and voluntary turnover intention. Research limitations/implications Despite the practical significance of this study in lessening the turnover decision of employees, the study has some limitations. Most significantly, the sample size of this cross-sectional study was small and limited to employees from only one large public sector organisation in Ghana. Findings of this study could be generalised by using large samples from other sectors and geographical areas. Furthermore, future studies should consider positive outcomes such as OCB and innovative work behaviour to help extend our conceptual framework. Originality/value Overall, findings of this study provide tentative support to the proposition that employee engagement and affective commitment help to minimise the decision of employees to leave the organisation regardless of how they perceive the leadership style of their immediate supervisors. Most importantly, psychological climate which is referred to as individual employee perceptions of their work environment had a strong contingent effect on the negative relationship between affective commitment and turnover intention such that employees’ positive perception of the work environment weakens the link between commitment and turnover, whereas a negative perception of the working environment strengthens the relationship between commitment and turnover. As a result, employees’ positive perception of their work environment decreased their turnover intention decisions.

  • Innovation and organizational development: the role of organizational
           leadership
    • Pages: 338 - 351
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 338-351, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to assess the moderation effect of organizational leadership on the relationship between service firm’s innovation strategy and organizational development. The study argues that in Ghana where power distance is high, organizational leadership provides the needed impetus for strategies such as innovation to achieve enhanced firm performance. Design/methodology/approach Data were collected from different service firms across Ghana for this study. A confirmatory factor analysis was used for construct reliability and validity checks. Robust regression estimations were then performed to test the hypothesized relationships. Findings The results show that both product innovation as strategy and organizational leadership are positively related to organizational development (i.e. financial and non-financial performance). It was also found that organizational leadership does not only serve as a predictor of strategy formulation but provides the necessary strategic fit between a firm’s strategy and business environment to achieve organizational development. Originality/value This study has shown that in high-power distance cultures, firms that are able to align their leadership orientation with their institutional environment are able to create a better fit between their strategic orientation and business environment in order to enhance organizational development.

  • The leaders’ emotional intelligence
    • Pages: 352 - 365
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 352-365, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to determine the extent to which leaders’ emotional intelligence (EI) predict the voluntary work behaviors (i.e. organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) and counterproductive workplace behavior (CWB)) of employees in the Ghanaian banking sector. Design/methodology/approach Quantitative approach was adopted to collect data from 234 respondents working in both high- and low-performing banks in Ghana. Both purposive and simple random sampling techniques were used for the selection of the respondents. Findings The findings of the study revealed that the leaders’ EI positively predicted the OCB of employees while a negative relationship was found between leaders’ EI and its prediction of employees’ CWB. Thus, emotionally intelligent leaders are able to evoke citizenship behaviors while mitigating CWBs of employees in the Ghanaian banking sector. Research limitations/implications The research addresses the gap in literature on how leaders’ EI influence employees’ tendency to exhibit either OCB or CWB specifically in the Ghanaian context. Practical implications The findings suggest that organizational leaders especially in the Ghanaian banking sector should be trained to be emotionally intelligent in their relationship with employees as such skills boost positive voluntary behaviors and have the tendency to alleviate the negative behaviors by employees. Originality/value The study provides an in-depth account on how the leaders’ EI influence both employees’ OCB and CWB and how to appropriately evoke or alleviate them, respectively.

  • Administrative leadership
    • Pages: 366 - 394
      Abstract: African Journal of Economic and Management Studies, Volume 8, Issue 3, Page 366-394, September 2017.
      Purpose The purpose of this paper is to examine the leadership roles the Ethiopian civil service managers preferably embody in their setting. As such, contextually preferred roles were identified and briefly contrasted with the leadership literature. It also outlined the directions for the future research agenda. Design/methodology/approach Q-methodology, an approach reasonably like “grounded-theory” was used. It is suited to embrace life as lived by the actors themselves. In this specific case, Q-methodology allows the managers to conceptualize their definitions or preferences of leadership roles. The data were obtained from 51 managers working in the federal civil service organizations covering a broad range of public policy and service fields. Findings Based on the Q-sorts of 51 managers, the authors found three distinct yet interrelated archetypes of role preferences, which the authors labeled as the change agents, affective leaders and result-oriented realists. The study, however, demonstrates that although the ostensible echoes of each of these perspectives were professed, there were overlooked functions that are needed to be performed for full practice of each. Practical implications Understanding the contextually preferred leadership roles, if considered in designing the management training and development programs, could prove productive. It also informs the staff recruitment and promotion activities of the civil service organizations. Originality/value Conceptualizations of public leadership roles are abound in the literature. As they mostly emerged in a Western context, their applicability to other settings is questionable. Studying the subject in the context of Ethiopia, this paper contributes to the growing body of African literature on administrative leadership and informs the practice as well as the scholarship in this area.
