The method used to collect data was by distributing questionnaire to one hundred and thirty-two employees. The sampling procedure that was being used was simple random sampling where these one hundred and thirty-two sets of questionnaires were distribute randomly to employees in varies departments. One hundred and thirty-two questionnaires were distribute but only one hundred questionnaires were returned. The results showed that transformational leadership style has a stronger relationship with job satisfaction rather than transactional and laissez-faire leadership styles.
