Abstract: This article was created on the basis of a research task at College of Polytechnics Jihlava (VsPJ) in the Czech Republic under the name "The Influence of Trust, Reputation and other Intangible Assets on Company Performance". Leadership of employees is a part of management. A leader has an innate ability to motivate employees to work willingly and with greater initiative. On the contrary, a manager is the person responsible for the organization and the achievement of organizational goals. The word “manager” expresses a position within the organizational hierarchy. The methods used for leadership/management of employees are based on the facts how the leaders use their authority and whether there is a women or a man in the leading position. The leadership model from Vroom and Yetton is based on the quality of the decision and its acceptability. The newer version of the model is extended to the factor of time consumption, cost and staff development. There are five styles of leadership that are derived from the model of a decision tree.
