Purpose: Leadership is widely considered to be an important aspect of organizing and there are several reasons to suggest that managerial styles are of particular relevance in this context. However, there is a dearth of both theoretical and empirical work on leadership styles and their subsequent effects on middle managers’ organizational commitment, their job satisfaction, their communication and their managerial effectiveness. The aim of this paper is to report the findings of an empirical study exploring the relationship between four prominent models of leadership and the fundamental organizational features such as commitment, satisfaction, communication and effectiveness, regarding a variety of measures of variables such as the organizational structure (i.e. the type of branch) and the managers’ individual traits (i.e. the age, the education level).
