Abstract

Successful leaders are facilitators who specifically target skilled and committed workers. Studies in organizational psychology and the research on an organization's actions suggest that management styles and staff motivation are key factors of business performance or failure. This study aimed to study the influence of leadership on the performance of employers in the education ministry and higher education of Somaliland and to define four types, namely, autocratic, transformational, democratic and transactional leadership. This study analyzed the effects of leadership styles on employee efficiency. The final findings have shown that the autocratic leadership model has a detrimental effect on the department's efficiency, which is reflected in high absenteeism, poor morale, decline of job satisfaction, and rotation. The application of egalitarian, transformative and transactional leaders have a positive and important effect on the success of workers assessed by the high morale, efficiency, engagement, and dedication of the employees. The analysis aimed to explore the impact of leadership styles on employee achievement in the Somaliland Ministry of Education and Superior Studies and to define four major styles: autocratic, transformative, democratic and transactional management styles. Consequently, it is possible to assume that democratic, transactional and disruptive leadership has a positive connection to employee performance. In contrast, autocratic models often have a negative relation to employee results. It should also follow and further enhance its powerful aspects of practicing those features of democratic leadership that contribute positively to the company's success.

Keywords: autocratic, democratic, leadership, performance, transactional, transformational
