Innovative work behavior has the aim to improve the performance and competence of the organization in achieving its goal.

The purpose of this study was to test the effect of leadership behavior through the mediation of performance expectations, in revealing the individual’s innovative work behavior. The population study was a group of companies on transportation and logistics business lines involving 199 employees. One is a holding company and the other nine are affiliate companies.
