Leadership has always been a very hot and discussed topic. It is not only required in times of crisis, but in all other times. The leadership and management strategy of a company can bring a lot of success, but they can also ruin the organization. The case I will present in that dissertation is a real situation happening in the company I work for. The leadership style pursued by the management causes employees’ dissatisfaction and turnover. On the other hand the company has good financial results. So the paradox here is that the autocratic leadership brings financial stability, but motivational break down. Is that style then the best leadership approach in times of crisis? Using the company I work for as an example I will try to test what leadership styles rule in other companies and what their impact on company growth is. I will start with the proposition that the autocratic style may bring low commitment but high financial results. My goal is to distribute questionnaires among a big representative sample of employees in order to study what style they work under, is it successful and if not – then what is the best way to lead now. The dissertation further will have the following sections: introduction explaining the situation within the company and the problem; literature review reflecting on all the topics, ideas and views regarding leadership and its best application in times of crisis; methodology describing all the methods and techniques in finding the primary data and testing the hypothesis; analysis of all the information gathered; recommendations and final conclusions. I find that topic very interesting and actual for many other employees stuck in the same situation now. I hope the final result will reveal what is the best model of leading a company in times of global financial crisis.
