Abstract

In recent years, green construction has become increasingly essential in the country's construction industry. Leadership is critical to the success of any project, particularly GBC projects.The goal of this research is to look into the relationship between GBC projects and project managers' leadership
styles. The study focuses on two aspects of project managers' leadership behaviors: task-oriented leadership and relationship-oriented leadership. Furthermore, the role of leadership competence in mediating the relationship between leadership behavior and GBC project performance is studied. This
study tries to define project managers' leadership and styles in green building projects in Pakistan. A questionnaire survey was used to identify 13 leadership traits, including the desire for job success and efficiency. Two groups can be established out of these 13 project leadership attributes based on
the Direction and task-oriented leadership, as well as the relationship-based leadership. Within extant literature, most of the research on project-based organizations is related to construction and engineering. As in Pakistan, the construction industry is emerging and there is a scarcity of research
on its different dimensions in which leadership behavior is also one of the dimensions in the industry. The findings revealed that project managers' task-oriented leaderships receive greater attention, whereas their relationships with their subordinates are frequently disregarded. This study will provide
project managers and scholars working on green building projects with a better knowledge of project management leadership and styles. The current research which investigates the effect of leadership behaviors of project managers on the success of GBC projects and leadership competence is taken
as a mediator variable will be an important contribution.
