Author(s): Dr. JV Jayanthi Kumari
Abstract: The main aim of any organization is to sustain competitive advantage and considered to be effective between the demands of various stakeholders and the needs of the employees. Based on the previous studies in related field, it has been demonstrated that an appropriate leadership style can influence the success and the economic growth of both the organizations and employees. Leadership style is a double-edged tool in work-organizations. As a human resource management skill, it has both the constructive as well as disruptive dimensions in the workplace. Depending on the circumstance and appropriateness, leadership style can pose as a pure incentive and positive in building a performance oriented organisation. On the other hand, it can also act as a disincentive and negative backlash corroding responsibility for performance in organisations. Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to explain the effects of leadership styles on the organizational performance.
