Keywords:Autocratic, Democratic, Laissez-faire, Leadership, Operational performance, PLS-SEM
This research looks at how different types of leadership affect organizational productivity. Three hundred and seventy-two respondents were surveyed using an adopted and validated questionnaire. The results show that the majority of those surveyed were married and male, with the highest working experience being 9 years and above, as well as possessing a bachelor’s degree as their educational qualification. With the exception of the laissez-faire leadership style (LZS; = -0.094, t = -1.029, p 0.05), the ordinary least square (OLS) regression result shows that leadership style positively affects operational performance with an adjusted R2 value of 0.415, which is positively significant at 5% (ALS; = 0.358, t = 3.062; DLS; = 0.376, t = 3.229, p 0.05). So, the R-squared value of 0.440 shows that the style of leadership only explained 44% of the difference.
