This study investigated the relationship among organizational leadership styles (criterion variables), organizational culture, and employee job satisfaction, and organizational performance (predictor variables). The study research method was the quantitative method using a correlational research design that investigated the relationship among the variables. The data indicated relationships existed among the criterion variable, transformational leadership and the predictor variables, culture and employee job satisfaction. Correlation tests and regression analysis reflected the existence of significant relationships. The MLQ survey instrument facilitated data collection on leadership styles and on employee job satisfaction. In addition, the MLQ survey facilitated the collection of data concerning outcomes or behaviors of the leadership styles. Outcomes included cultural artifacts, extra effort from employees, and employee job satisfaction. In addition, the amended survey included supplementary demographic questions. Transformational and transactional leadership positively correlated with increased employee job satisfaction correlated with organizational performance. The findings of this study supported the literature review findings. The results may illuminate the relationship among organizational leadership styles and organizational culture and organizational job satisfaction and performance thereby facilitating organizational success.
