Abstract This study will investigate leadership styles in Gr eek enterprises. In my research, I used the case of multinational corporations in Greece an d Greek family-owned businesses to investigate peculiar traits of leadership styles of Greek managers. Multinational cor- porations offer an ideal setting to investigate whe ther and how cultural differences affect leadership styles because local and internat ional managers and expatriates are routinely exposed to these potential differences as they interact with one another. Family-owned businesses offer an ideal setting to i nvestigate traditional leadership style reflecting Greek cultural traits. I used semi -structured interviews, conducted via personal meetings, online meetings and e-mails to c apture the experience of managers in these organizations. I also used the relevant li terature, case studies, and databases as secondary data to guide and support my research by analyzing different leadership styles, the relation between leadership and culture , and how they affect organizational performance. My aim for this research was to answer the followin g questions: • What are the most common leadership styles in Greek enterprises? • How do Greek managers lead so as to create producti vity and sustainability? • What are the most effective and ineffective traits of these leadership styles? • How should Greek managers change their leadership s tyle to improve the per- formance of their teams and organizations?
