In this era of change and growth, leaders have the greatest impact on the success and long-term viability of all organizations and institutions, as well as the formation and maintenance of organizational culture (Robbins &amp; Judge, 2012). Furthermore, the same holds true for educational institutions. Therefore, this study is interested in identifying the effect of leadership styles on employee performance, focusing on the mediating role of soft skills and the moderating role of organizational unfairness. A quantitative method was adopted, and the data of 184 teachers was collected by a higher educational institute. The study has used a cross-sectional research design by using the convenience sampling technique. SMART PLS version 22 data analysis reveals that transactional and transformational leadership styles have a significant positive relationship with employee performance via the mediating role of soft skills. Further organizational unfairness has negatively moderated the relationship between transactional and transformational leadership styles and employee performance. The present study is useful for building employee performance by employing various soft skills and leadership styles and reducing the environment of organizational unfairness. This research could pave the way to improving employee and management readiness to face the 4.0 education era. Limitations and future recommendations are discussed.</p> 2022-12-18T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2023 Kamran Khan, Mahvia Gul Impact of Social Media Marketing on Service Marketing in prospective of Pakistan’s Market 2023-03-11T14:09:10-05:00 Zulqarnain Haider Khush Dil Khan <p>In this study the impact of social media on service marketing for global service brands is check in Pakistan.

In the short run, an increase in Exchange Rate and Inflation leads to a decrease in bond prices while an increase GDP, Risk Free Rate of Return and Monetary Policy Rate leads to a corresponding increase in bond prices. It is recommended that investors consider inflation, GDP, exchange rate, Risk Free Return and Monetary Policy, among other factors, when making decisions on the position to take in a bond as it determines bond prices. Policymakers should aim at working to achieving low inflation and exchange rate figures as that will increase bond prices and make it more attractive to foreign investors.

Owners and administrators were given a preliminary survey questionnaire to fill out. While correlation looks at the link between factors, regression demonstrates the null hypothesis. Customer focus, competitor focus, cost focus, inter-functional coordination, service innovation, and market success were all examined using various techniques. Our research showed that when looking at combined industries, only the link between client focus and service innovation is supported, while the link between service innovation and market performance is not. There is evidence to support the hypotheses that service innovation boosts market performance in the telecommunications sector, and that a focus on competitors and costs contributes to a more creative environment. While service innovation does support market performance in the food and beverage business, it does not support the relationship between cost orientation and inter-functional coordination. Few empirical investigations have focused on service innovation like this one. More research is needed to determine how a company's strategic direction affects its ability to innovate its products, but the findings of this study are transferable to other service industries.</p> 2022-12-31T00:00:00-05:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Maria, Syed Moin-ud-Din Shah
