This paper estimates the influence of leadership on company performance. We consider three dimensions of performance -profit, profitability and stock prices and attempt to find empirical evidence of the impact of leadership on each of them using data from the U.S. from 1990 through 2008. The purpose of the paper is wholly devoted to measuring the impact of a quantitative link between company performance and leadership in a model sense, although, admittedly, the leadership style as well as performance is mediated by the form of organizational culture that is present. The intention of the paper is not to explore the differences in the strategic vision of a leader and a non-leader or to compare their differences in the personal qualities, firm and industry context, or examine the effect of these contextual variables on dimensions of vision.
