dc.description.abstract This research work sought to establish the relationship between transformational leadership behaviour and the exhibition of citizenship behaviours by employees; it also sought to ascertain that employees respond to a leader’s transformational leadership attributes by performing extra roles in their work life. Social Exchange Theory was the theoretical framework adopted in this work because exchanges between an employee and the supervisor are the primary determinants of workplace behaviours. The data were generated using modified questionnaire adopted from Bass and Avolio’s Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire and Podsakoff et al.’s Organizational Citizenship Behaviour Questionnaire. The copies of which were administered to the respondents. The causal research design was adopted to determine and measure the influence of transformational leadership on organizational citizenship behaviour of the workers. The sample size was determined using Taro Yamane’s statistical formula. Generated data were analyzed and hypotheses tested using Pearson’s Correlation and Paired-Samples T-Test technique. The study found that all the transformational leadership behaviour components were positively related to the organizational citizenship behaviours correlated against them, which boosts organizational performance . This implies that an organization where extra role behaviours by employees are lacking struggles with goal attainment and that the leaders there expend more energy dealing with unproductive issues like disputes, pacification and the like, than on the required duties. The study recommends that leaders should endeavour to foster organizational citizenship behaviours in employees by modelling similar characteristics, taking constructive and personalized interests in their wellbeing, providing meaning and challenge to work and stimulating their intellect. Most importantly, mangers should choose and even combine what character disposition to exhibit based on the organizational citizenship behaviour deemed important to the achievement of organizational objectives. en_US
