REIS NETO, Mário Teixeira; DE ARAUJO, Rejaine Nélia  and  AVELAR FERREIRA, Cláudia Aparecida. Leadership theories and individual performance. Pensam. gest. [online]. 2019, n.47, pp.148-179. ISSN 1657-6276.

The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of the laissez-faire, transactional and transformational leadership style on individual performance (task performance and context performance) in a convenience sample composed of leaders and followers from three different companies. The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ) was used and a few questions were added, as well as five performance categories. Three hundred people participated in the research, and the data were processed and analyzed using the PLS approach of the R software. The study showed that transformational leadership influenced the performance of the task and the performance of the context. It should be emphasized that this research contributed to empirical studies, in the themes of Leadership and Performance.
