dc.description.abstractThe management and behavioral studies have paid much attention on destructive leadership while empirical research studies on destructive leadership in context of tanner remain scarce. This study proposes and validates the theoretical fremwork that describe counterproductive work behavior and destructive leadership constructs in Pakistani tanner context. Destructive leadership has comprises three dimensions that are Machiavellianism, abusive supervision, and psychopathic behavior. This study investigated the mediation of justice perception and information silence, while moderation of belongingness and locus of control in these defined relationships. The study employed a quantitative research approach that entailed a cross-sectional survey using a self administered questionnaire to collect primary data from the tanner sector of Pakistan. Data was collected from 398 respondents through self-administered questionnaires from the individuals of Pakistani tanner context. SEM have been employed on the collected data with the purpose to examine the hypothesized relationships. Finidngs predicted the existence of destructive leadership leads to counterproductive work behavior (CWB) in the tanner sector. Information silence and justice perception mediate the relationship between destructive leadership and counterproductive work behavior except for the relationship of Machiavellianism with Information silence and CWB. Locus of control and belongingness moderate the relation of destructive leadership with CWB. The present study enhances the existing literature on negative aspects of leadership along with theoretically contribute the knowledge of Conservation of resource and Affective event theories. The tanner sector is the largest growing sector after the textile in Pakistan and primarily ignored in research, so this study contributes to this sector by enhancing the knowledge of counterproductive work behavior which is an important area for organizational perspectives. The II regulatory bodies should provide different training and development sessions for the leaders with the purpose to reduce destructive leadership which consequently will reduce CWB. The forthcoming researchers may emphasize on the organizational politics and horizontal violence with destructive leadership.
