Purpose: The objective of this study is to define leadership and describe leadership styles. Design/Methodology/Approach: The study defines the styles of leadership as presented in the literature and then performs an analysis of the efficiency and motivation they offer to the employees, as yielded by a secondary literature review. Findings: Leadership can influence the attitudes and behavior of a small or large, formal or informal group of people by an individual in such a way that they voluntarily, willingly and with the appropriate cooperation try to achieve goals arising from its mission team, as efficiently as possible. Practical Implications: By efficiently practicing a leadership style suited to the employees, the employees can find themselves to be motivated and more productive, which in turn yields greater efficiency and benefits for the organization. Originality/Value: The present study allows for a contemporary view on the literature and leadership styles, as well as an examination of the view on leadership styles and how they evolved from their founding to their current form.
