Abstract

An in-depth look at how management impacts the success of a startup will be conducted in this study. Despite having a wealth of literature available surrounding Leadership qualities and leadership styles and their effect on employee performance and attitudes, there is a clear gap concerning how commitment to the job and passion for it impacts employee performance and attitudes. The researcher found this concerning given how vital employee engagement is, especially considering that highly engaged employees boast a number of benefits, such as trust and overcoming failures by virtue of organisational culture. Data needed to be collected was collected using a qualitative method due to the sensitive nature of employee engagement and the fact that such a method had rarely been used in previous research. In support of previous findings, this method of analysis provided results that pointed to the significance of the manager-employee relationship on graduate employee engagement. The most prominent finding from this research was that leaders developed through leadership development programs, and this contrasted with previous research that suggested that this was more common in established firms instead of startups. The conclusions drawn from this research empirically prove that the right leadership style is the cornerstone of a successful startup. Researchers in existing literature have outlined the importance of this in their study as well. As employees' commitment to the job and their passion for it determine their performances and attitudes, leadership qualities and leadership styles play a vital role in their performance.
