The study aimed to investigate the leadership styles of managers in Ministry of Health (MoH) hospitals. A representative sample of 105 managers from various MoH hospitals in the UAE was selected using random sampling. The researcher developed a questionnaire to identify prevalent leadership styles among managers.

Additionally, the study fou nd no significant differences in employees' perceptions of leadership styles among the managers, with these nonsignificant differences attributed to variables such as nationality, education level, service duration, and gender for specific leadership styles.
