This article defines the importance of choosing the appropriate leadership style depending on the nature of the organization to enhance the effectiveness and success of companies both the future and the [resent environment. Most organizations tend to have a lot of challenges as a result of failure to determine the type of leadership that suits them. This challenges end up resulting in dismal performance in the management process. It is very crucial to express the relationship between the organization leadership styles and performance to realize change among the affected companies. Leadership entails the manner of direction of workers in an organization and how they are motivated to realize the goals of an organization.

The article defines the similarities in leadership styles depending on the nature of the organization to enhance the effectiveness and success of companies both the present and future business environment (Hurduzeu, 2015). In similarities, we are going to consider various leadership styles and highlight their suitability to provide more insights into the organization to enable the companies to choose the best style. The articles discuss the similarities among autocratic, democratic, transactional, transformational, charismatic and bureaucratic styles to determine the impacts on the organizational structures and their impact in the next 10-20 years.

The investigations of the article looks into the similarities of leadership styles to the performance of organizations. Previous research shows that leadership assists in the value system and helps employees in developing their abilities and skills. Besides, democratic leadership style helps to improve the decision making skills of the employees.

Previous research also indicates that autocratic leadership restricts the employees to their superiors’ orders and is not suitable for organizations that want to enhance the autonomy among the employees. Primarily, the style only works in favor of the organization but not to the employees. Charismatic and bureaucratic leadership have negative impacts in organizations and not suitable for current organization set up. However the initial research showed that transactional leadership positively impacted in most organizations that were not in line with the research conducted in the article. Therefore there is need for further research on the type of leadership style and its influence on organizations’ performance going into the future.

From the article, it was identified that there is a distinct similarity with the provision of earlier articles concerning the same issue. The suitability provided of various leadership styles is stated and how they are used in enhancing efficiency in organizations. The main similarity in leadership styles is that both approaches identify actions that any leader can be capable of doing in any given situation. The behavioral theory of leadership mostly agree on the types of behaviors and actions that make a good leader, whether they refer to them as behaviors, traits or actions. Despite the fact that there are similarities, on the other hand there are limitations. For instance, the study makes the use of quantitative data only to draw its conclusions.

There is need for future research to include other aspects of research methods to supplement quantitative method to ensure that more accuracy is enhanced in establishing the relationship between the leadership styles and the performance in the organizations. In addition, there is a gap between earlier research and the article concerning the suitability of transactional leadership. In the previous research it recommended the method although the article does not find it suitable especially with the current organizational structure. Therefore the recommendation of more research as well. Organizations should also assess their structure to determine the type of leadership style that works best for them. The managers should support leadership styles that suits the organization. Lastly, the styles that do not fit with the current nature of business should be avoided.
