After the sample was established, it was continued with the data collection, through observation method and questionnaires by using the instrument that had been prepared. The data obtained before the analysis was tested by validity and reliability test by using confirmatory factor analysis technique to confirm the accuracy (valid and reliable) of the instrument, then analyzed by using Partial Least Square (PLS) analysis technique. The results of further analysis are interpreted and continued by concluding and providing suggestions.
Analiysis of situation and time:
This research was conducted at PT. Khrisna Multi Lintas Cemerlang located in International Cargo Area Ngurah Rai Airport.

The data was collected by plunging directly into the field at any given time. In addition to the researcher as an instrument, was used the supporting equipment in the collecting of data, such as recorder so that the data which was collected was enough to complete the research and achieved the research objectives. To obtain the necessary data in this research, it can be told that data collection techniques used was include questionnaires, interviews and documentation.
In measuring the research variables, respondents were asked to declare their perception of choosing one of the five answer alternatives: ( 5 ) strongly agree, ( 4 ) agree, ( 3 ) disagree, ( 2 ) disagree, ( 1 ) agree.
Testing of Research Instrument:
The testing of research instrument result shows all the questions of the four variables which was studied (leadership style, work environment, job satisfaction and employee performance) are valid (coefficient above 0.30), and indicate good level of reliability ( Alpha correlation coefficient ) Cronbach is above 0.60).
Data Analysis Technique:
3.9.1 Descriptive Analysis:

Evaluation of Measurement Model ( Outer Model )
Convergent Validity : In the result of this study, each indicator has an outer loading value greater than 0.50 and T-Statistic is above 1.96. so that the indicators used to measure each research variable can be said to be valid.
Discriminant Validity: all variables have an AVE value above 0.5. In addition, the square root of average variance extracted ( QUOTE _x0001_ ) for each variable was mostly above the correlation coefficient values between variables. Thus, the results was obtained indicate the discriminant validity of the research model was good enough and acceptable for further analysis.
Compositereliability: the value of the composite reliability of the four latent variables has been above 0.70, so it can be said that the reliable indicator block measures the variables.
Evaluation of Structural Model ( Inner Model )
The Result Of Hyphotesis Testing
Figure 1 Figure shows the progress of the system
From the table above, it can be determined the results of hypothesis testing described in the following description:
The Leadership Style (X1) proved that has positive and significant effect on Employee Performance (Y1). This result is shown by the positive path coefficient of 0.261 with T-statistic = 2.148 (T-statistic> 1.96)
Work Environment (X2) has positive and significant effect on Employee Performance (Y2). This result is shown by path coefficient having positive value equal to 0.249 with T-statistic = 2.098 (T-statistic> 1.96).
The Leadership Style (X1) has positive and significant effect on job satisfaction (Y1). This result is shown by a positive path coefficient of 0.350 with T-statistic = 3.235 (T-statistic> 1.96).

|N o||Relationship of Variables||Direct Effects||Indirect Effects||Total Effects|
126, greater than the effect of mediation of job satisfaction (Y1) on the indirect effect of work environment (X2) on the employee performance (Y2) that is with value of path coefficient of 0119
Thus, overall, the style of leadership style (X1) job satisfaction (Y1) employee performance (Y2) with total effect gained is 0.387, compared to work environment (X2) job satisfaction (Y1) employee performance (Y2) with a total effect of 0.368. These findings provide clues that leadership styles and work environments can improve employee performance.
