The Bank Managers’ Leadership Style and Its Impact on Employees’ Job Satisfaction in Libya

Abdallah ALNAGI [1] , Zehra TAN [2]


Employment satisfaction is a major component of any company's success. In other words, companies with more satisfied employees are expected to be effective and efficient. This study examines the kinds of current leadership types in Libyan banks and the impact they have on employee satisfaction. The target group consisted of 400 employees from Libyan banks. A comprehensive survey of stratified workers at the Banks of Libya has been circulated with four hundred questionnaires. The respondents replied a total of 204 questionnaires (51 %). The results of the research showed a strong positive link between autocratic leadership and employee satisfaction, together with democratic leadership, while leisure leadership has a strong negative relation to employee satisfaction.
