Journalof Management ?2 (31).Thisstudy investigates the employees performance at Business Organizations inKosovo due to effect of different leadership styles. The impact of autocratic;bureaucratic; charismatic; democratic; laissez-faire; transformational andtransactional leadership styles on employee performance at BusinessOrganizations in Kosovo is determined. The role of leaders in today’s organizationshas changed and the success of any organization relies on the leadership stylespracticed by the leaders. A good leader understands the importance of employeesin achieving the goals of the organization, and that motivating the employeesis of paramount importance in achieving these goals.

Different leadershipstyles bring about different consequences, which have direct or indirect impacton the attitude and behaviors of the employees. The findings of this studyindicated that democratic, autocratic and transformational leadership stylespositively impacted the level of employee performance.  The results of the correlation analysesrevealed that charismatic, bureaucratic, laissez-faire and transactional leadershipstyle has a negative impact on the level of employee performance butstatistically it is not significant. Each leadership style is a combination ofdifferent types of behavior and characteristics of leaders. If there is theneed to make a decision quickly and take urgent action, a leader should rely onthe autocratic style. If the group is undisciplined and poorly organized, theautocratic style is more efficient. The democratic leadership style matcheswith a well-organized and stable group.

In the longer term, the democraticstyle of leadership, which includes giving employees a certain freedom andinvolving them in decision-making, is more productive.  The transformational leadership style matcheswith attempts to induce followers to reorder their needs by transcendingself-interests and strive for higher order needs. The result clearly indicatesthat transformational leadership is correlated with employee performance.

Effect of LeadershipStyle on Employee Performance. Arabian Journal of Business and ManagementReview .

The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of the differentleadership styles (autocratic, democratic, and participative) on the employees’performance. The autocratic style is characterized by an “I tell” philosophy. Thedemocratic approach is characterized by an “I share” philosophy. Participativeleadership style is that involves all members of a team in identifyingessential goals and developing procedures or strategies for reach those goals. Oneof the main benefits of participative leadership is that the process allows forthe development of the additional leaders who can serve the organization at alater date. As elaborate by Myron Rush and Cole the participative style ofleadership has a greater positive effect on employee performance in whichsituation employee feel power and confidence in doing their job and in makingdifferent decisions. And in autocratic style leaders only have the authority totake decisions in which employees’ feels inferior in doing jobs and decisions.

In democratic style employee have to some extent discretionary power to do workso their performance is better than in autocratic style. Theauthoritative style is appropriate when new employees are unfamiliar and don’thave sufficient know how about their jobs. The consultative style isappropriate when organization needs creative problem solving. The participativestyle is appropriate when organization have competent and talented team members.The democratic leadership style in Al-Ghazi tractor factory would further empowertheir employees by developing teams and according some measure of power andauthority to their employees.
