Research questions: What are the core leadership behaviour factors that are relevantly contributing to work productivity of managers in the lower and middle management? What is the impact of leadership behaviour factors on leadership performance? Methods: Empirical study across different organisations using the Leadership Productivity Survey and the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire as instruments to survey 183 managers in the lower and middle management in organisations in Germany about the impact of their leader's performance on their individual work productivity, task motivation and job satisfaction. Results: The analysis shows that leadership behaviour factors have significant positive impact on work productivity of leaders in organisations. However, situational, generational and organisational aspects are necessarily to be considered in order to achieve leadership success on all levels. Moreover, the analysis shows that managers in the lower and middle management miss a motivational lead, meaningful interpersonal relationships with their leaders and approval from those with whom they have regular contact, which have been proven to have significant impact on work productivity of leaders.
