    Abstract

    In leadership, trust between superiors and subordinates plays a very important role. This article presents the results of empirical research covering the connection between the level of trust within an organization and leadership styles, which were defined in a dichotomous way (democratic vs. non-democratic). In order to understand the mutual connection between trust and leadership on a deeper level, we selected delegation, communication and control as important elements in the leadership process. The results obtained in the analyses indicate the connection between the level of democracy in leadership styles and the level of formalisation in delegation, communication and the control of the tasks of one’s subordinates, as well as the democracy in leadership and the level of trust.
