Abdulrahman Alsughayir


Leadership style is a kind of method that aims to realize organizational targets and affect all organizational activities. This quantitative study focused on various business domains in Saudi Arabia to examine how leadership styles are related to human resource strategies and organizational performance. The study adopted the self-administered survey methodology technique using a pre-validated pre-piloted questionnaire. Data were analyzed using Structural Equation Modelling. A total of 270 questionnaires were distributed with a response rate 92.9% based on a convenience method. Our survey found a direct positive relationship between leadership style and organizational performance and an indirect relationship between leadership style and human resource strategy as a mediator, while human resource strategies contribute positively and significantly to organizational performance. The findings are relevant for operating human resource management strategies and for developing a style of leadership. An enterprise can use this information to promote recognition and devotion among its employees based on a range of strategies, and then creates overall performance of the organization. Also, it is possible to use different leadership styles for different strategies. Consequently, this study has both theoretical and practical reference value.
