With the changing business scenario and changing generations, leadership style has also changed which has influenced leadership values also. This article focuses on the leadership values and its business impact. A research was conducted through administrating ‘The Leadership Q-sort Test’ amongst senior management people. This test was concerned with the leadership dimension of values - personal integrity, consideration for others, mental health, information, decision making and communication. The tool has assessed an individual’s values with respect to the leadership role in it. Based on the analysis, business impact of leadership values was seen and suggestions were made. Individual values are dissimilar and leaders need to understand how to use their own values to drive the creation of goals and strategies, optimize value for shareholders and stakeholders by determining sustainable vision for their organization and translate them into the operative values of employees to create tomorrow’s organization. Leaders also need to transform their leadership style to revolutionize the organization’s culture by implementing value creation strategies for the organization which will bring everyone on the same platform. By understanding and unleashing the invisible forces of leadership values, the motivational driving force can be implemented in the organization’s culture.
