Leadership matters; it is crucial for the success of organizations and concerns building and maintaining effective teams. In every organization, the leader needs to motivate, improve efficiency, achieve growth and create a good atmosphere, clearly not an easy task in today’s world. Leaders are constantly seeking to find which leadership style is the most effective to improve organizational outcomes and consequently achieve their goals. The purpose of the present article is to investigate the relationship between leadership styles and the organizational outcomes (considering effectiveness, job satisfaction, and extra effort). A multifactor leadership questionnaire, MLQ-5x Rater Form, was completed by a sample of 167 employees from different multinational companies. Based on the study, leaders need to adopt a more transformational leadership approach and avoid passive-avoidance attributes in order to increase positive organizational outcomes as well as company success and recognition. The scope of the research is limited to corporate sales hubs from 7 different companies and employees from 31 different nationalities.
