Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to examine the leadership influence on employee job performance, in this case, in the Royal Malaysian Police in Klang Valley in Malaysia. Various studies tried to examine leadership style and its influence on employee performance, job performance, firm performance, and commitment. The results were mixed, some are positive and some are negative. In the past, most of the research has taken various leadership styles that are cited under different leadership theories. This study has selected leadership styles such as supportive, participative, servant, transactional, and transformational leadership styles as independent variables that are assumed to have a direct influence on employee job performance, which is the dependent variable. A survey self-rating scale questionnaire was developed using past literature to examine leadership styles and employee performance. A sample of 196 respondents was recruited using a simple sampling technique. The collected data were recorded and analyzed using SPSS 22.0. The finding shows that only all leadership styles positively and significantly influence employee performance in the workplace.
