The availability of conflicting data in the scientific literature on the correlations between self-actualization, occupational stress and emotional burnout has suggested that the nature of the
relationship between occupational stress and self-actualization and emotional burnout may
change due to some other variables, such as coping strategies. The aim of the study is to
determine the nature of the relationship between emotional burnout as a result of occupational
stress with the characteristics of self-actualization and the peculiarities of coping behavior of
teachers. In a pilot study organized by the cross-sectional design, a survey of 107 Ukrainian
teachers was conducted. According to the purpose of the study, the following diagnostic
techniques were used: Victor Boyko's method of diagnosing the level of emotional burnout,
version of the Russian-language adaptation of Shostrom's self-actualization test SAT and
Ways of Coping Questionnaire. The main hypotheses of this study were tested using
correlation analysis and analysis of variance. It was found that the severity of burnout is
negatively correlated with self-actualization. In addition, the joint influence of self-actualization indicators and certain coping strategies on the nature of the formation of different
stages of emotional burnout was detected. It was also determined that coping strategies are
formed under the influence of two factors. On the one side, it is professional stress and burnout,
and on the other side, it is the desire to satisfy the need for self-actualization. The results
showed that the predictor of successful adaptation of teachers to the requirements of
professional activity are certain characteristics of the personal profile of coping behavior,
which have a mitigating effect on stress factors determined by self-actualization. Future
research is needed to determine the effectiveness of certain coping strategies on teachers'
resistance to occupational stressors and burnout over a longer period of follow-up

Myriad of discourses pouring from university podiums and social platforms have been
inundated with administrative and governance matters majorly. Not much has been echoed
about morality concerns in Nigerian tertiary institutions. Besides, history is replete with quite
a handful of literature in this area. However, none of the prior studies has developed such a
robust construct on the subject so as to capture the multiple simultaneous essences of shared
values and employee engagement in moral leadership-staff Job performance link. The study
involved a population of 3257 academic and non-academic staff from which a sample size of
327 was determined through simple random sampling. Drawing on stakeholder and social
exchange theories and using regression model and structural equation modelling as analytical
bases, results have vilified strong evidence of positive mediating effect of shared values and
job engagement in moral leadership-staff job performance relationship except a unit construct
(authentic leadership) that exhibited negative association. Finding has further foreclosed that
staff’s overall job performance will improve with panoptic constructs of moral leadership
whereas fragmented approach will only lead to sub-optimal performance. Study proposes an
inclusive framework connecting the modified constructs of moral leadership, shared values,
employee engagement, and job performance of universities’ staff. It is stressed that university
leadership obsessed with integrity found on strong ethical fibber will earn staff’s trust and
confidence and sustain university’s reputation for enduring leadership that is value laden.

Supply chain consists of all integrated activities that bring products to markets in the right
time, at the right place while creating value added in order to satisfy customers. The
performance of all activities in the supply chain requires the cooperation and coordination of
complex processes across all members in organizations. Successful supply chain
management relies on great leaders, who can communicate with their supply chain members
and encourage feedback systems to improve the workplace environment. The leaders have
the principal goal of making use of modern, scientific, technical and innovative methods in
the implementation of tasks and activities. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate
key factors affecting visionary leadership in the context of Thai manufacturing industry.
Data were collected using survey questionnaires administered to supply chain managers in
each manufacturing company located in industrial estates across the country. A total of 500
valid questionnaires were received and analyzed using structural equation modeling. The
results revealed that communication skill had the highest impact on visionary leadership,
followed by organization climate and creativity. The study outcome could be to the benefit
of managers, who strive to generate visionary leadership and realize how important it is to
incorporate communication skills as one of the most powerful instruments to improve
leadership

This study aims to analyze and explain the influence of transglobal leadership on employee
work motivation, the influence of transglobal leadership on organizational culture, the effect
of transglobal leadership on organizational commitment, the effect of transglobal leadership
on employee performance, the influence of motivation on employee performance, the
influence of organizational culture on employee performance, and the influence of
organizational commitment on employee performance. This research is an explanatory study
using a survey methodology. This research was conducted in 42 cooperative units of
government agencies in Makassar City. The population is 418 cooperative employees. The
sample was taken using the Stratified Random Sampling method of 180 people. Data were
collected through questionnaires and interviews. Data analysis used Partial Least Square
(PLS). The results obtained from testing of the seven hypotheses showed that there were six
hypotheses accepted because they had a positive and significant effect and one hypothesis was
rejected because it had an insignificant effect, namely the effect of organizational commitment
on employee performance. Cooperative managers need to pay more attention to relationships
with customers, review fair wages and regulations and rewards to employees, increase
understanding of shared values and meanings, increase understanding of aspects of work, and
improve employee positive attitudes
