Sažetak
Background: Change management has become a key instrument in every organization and is crucial for their survival since changes have become unavoidable. The manner in which changes are introduced in everyday practice is an important component of change management. Managing change involves thoughtful planning and implementation, as well as the involvement of employees. Success is based on an appropriate managerial approach since management styles have a direct impact on the introduction of change by transforming employee attitudes. The aim of the study was to examine the impact of different leadership styles onthe success of introducing changes.

Methods: We used a quantitative methodology. The instrument used was a validated questionnaire with closed questions. Four Slovenian healthcare centers were included in the study.

Results: The success of the introduced changes statistically positively correlates with the transformational leadership (p < 0.05), and negatively correlates with the Laissez-faire leadership (p < 0.05). The assessed effectiveness of leadership styles positively correlates with the transformational, transactional, and Laissez-faire leadership (p < 0.05). However, within the assessed effectiveness of leadership styles, and the satisfaction with the introduced changes the strong link was observed in transformational leadership.

Conclusions: Over the past decades, the emphasis on change has proven to be a key feature of organizational success. Changes are introduced and based on a proper management style, which has a direct impact on the working environment.
