Leadership and organisational culture are important factors influencing the competitive strength of an organisation. It is important to understand how these two powerful determinants of organisational performance affect each other. Research determining that specific types of organisational culture favour particular styles of leadership is important as it aids organisational leaders to identify which styles of leadership are more likely to be successful in their culture. In the organisational culture, leadership deals with creating a clearly articulated vision and possessing the skills and the resolve to recruit and develop followers who are committed to carrying out the vision. Having the ability to see the bigger picture and maintaining a balance between high-level strategies and front-line tactics. Inherent to the organisational culture are many values as task-related and relational values that deal with people as individuals and as organisation members. Leadership orientation and organisational culture dimensions proved to be significant predictors of job satisfaction, organisational commitment and intention to quit.
