Synopsis: 
In today’s world, leadership is a key factor in the coordination and direction of the personnel in healthcare centres. Consequently, it is crucial to determine the predominant leadership behaviours typical of the different nursing management levels and to analyse how this leadership was reflected in the daily interactions among the supervisors and their subordinates. The results will ultimately lead to a more efficient hospital system and a more effective use of human resources.

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Leadership is the ability to guide subordinates in a direction or decision so that they can perform a task or achieve a goal that leaves them feeling empowered and accomplished. Leaders are capable of producing changes and at the same time, they inspire others to do the same. This research analysed gender-based differences and dimensions of nursing leadership styles in 18 hospitals in Andalusia, a region of southern Spain.
