The research was conducted in small and middle sized companies in the Czech Republic and Austria. The research is based on four factors of organizational design and mainly focused on third factor which is the leadership and management style. We proceed from various classifications of leadership and management styles. For our research are the most suitable leadership and management style classification models from Vroom & Yetton, Blake & Mouton (leadership grid) and Bass & Avolio (transformational and transactional leadership).
