It is therefore, expected that the findings of this study will go a long way in improving the leadership class. Leadership is the ability to persuade other to seek defined objective enthusiastically. It is human fact, which binds a group together and motivates it toward it goals (David, 2003). Robin (2000) defined leadership as the ability of superiors to direct, guide and motivates people towards the attainment of given set of goals in an organization. The source of influence may be formal such as that provided by the possession of managing rank in an organization or informally outside the organization structure. Most organizational theorists agree that effective leadership is one of the most important contributors to overall organizational success

Organization look for managers who can manage effectively and efficiently. But each manager is unique with his or her style depending on the situation and inclined paradigm. Managerial style is the pattern of thinking, feeling and behaviour that a manager uses to deal with people and situation. A manager has several managerial styles such as autocratic, bureaucratic, charismatic, democratic and laissez faire (nwachwukwu, 1998). According to Basse (1982), there are managers with only one managerial style. However, most managers have a combination of those five managerial styles, although they can only be classified in various ways. Managerial style have a great impact on the organization’s operation. Effective managerial style can increase productivity, bring about empowerment, boost up employees morale, motivation and contributes positively to organization and so on. Leadership happen to be the core and of course the Nervous system in organizational solvency. (Hogan & Curphy, 1994; House Aditya, 1997; Judge & piccolo, 2004). Leadership leads to more productivity and profitability, but the extent of success depends on the style of the leader and the systematic environment created for staff functionality. Based on this background the researcher will use Dangote cement as a case study


A large number of organizations spend considerable huge amount on solving managerial problems. Besides, research on management’s leadership style and organizational performance are limited and personnel do not know enough about management’s leadership style and the organizational productivity. Several organizations today have the problem of leadership and the style to be adopted in leading employees. Over the years, organizations have faced the bureaucratic leadership. Consequently, many leadership ideas within the last century have affected the general effectiveness of organization’s productivity (Heurieglet, 2004). Leadership has characteristics that distinguishes it as a dynamic symbolic movement where every employee looks up to for adjustment when necessary. These characteristics explain the vital sensitive and proper positioning of leaders in organization. The absence of effective leadership is a serious problem endemic in many organizations. It is obvious that the resultant outcome is poor staff performance, absence of motivation, poor growth and development of the institutions. Hence, this would sort to investigate management leadership style and organizational performance.
