Abstract: This article examines leadership and management styles of managers in small and middle sized companies in the Czech Republic and Austria. 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). Furthermore we occupied ourselves in this article with eligibility and suitability of managers for discharge of their duties, which can also influence their performance. The research was conducted mainly in the following three industries of small and middle sized companies: financial and insurance services, ICT and retail. Conclusions according to the three leadership and management style classification models and details are stated in the article.
