dc.description.abstract The aspect of leadership styles and employee performance has been a subject of discussion for a long time. By the mere fact that many researchers have paid attention to this area, shows how critical leadership styles are to employee performance. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of achievement- oriented leadership style on the performance of senior managers of the Company of the Year Award (COYA) winning companies in Kenya and adopted a descriptive correlational design. The population was made up of the 13 companies that won COYA during the years 2010 to 2013. A census was used to survey the 84 senior managers who report directly to the CEOs of the 13 companies. Self-administered questionnaires were used to collect data. Descriptive and inferential techniques were used to analyze data using the statistical program for social sciences (SPSS) version 20 as a tool. The findings indicated that the application of achievement oriented leadership style has a significant positive effects on employee performance. A Chi-square test to determine this established that the achievement oriented leadership style affected employee performance at (3, N=69) =8.773, p<. 045. The analysis of variance showed that achievement oriented leadership style significantly affected the performance of employees, F (.120) = 2.406. On regression, the coefficient of determination (R2 ) showed a strong positive relationship between achievement oriented leadership style and employee performance. The findings indicate an R2 of 0.343, which means that this leadership style affects employee performance by 34.3 percent. en_US
