Abstract: This paper aims to identify the differences in leadership styles that men and women in leadership positions show. In order to fulfil the objectives of the work, empirical research was conducted on a sample of 594 managers using the original methodology of Leader Behavior Analysis developed by Ken Blanchard Companies; the results were statistically analyzed using parametric and non-parametric tests and presented in the form of contingency tables and other illustrative tools (e.g. correspondence maps). The description of the chosen methodology also includes the verification of the gender-impartiality test used. When analyzing the obtained data, a manifestation of identical trends of individual genders to certain styles of leadership was found, as women tend to use delegating and subsequently coaching, while men prefer directing and subsequently supporting. Regarding the achieved average scores of leadership style flexibility, men showed a higher value of this indicator, but in the case of testing the achieved average efficiency score of a practiced leadership style, women were significantly more successful compared to men. In conclusion of this paper, the results obtained are discussed.
