Every person does need to know where he wants to go and what he wants to achieve before being able to achieve anything in business and life (Latham & Frayne 1989). The trainer needs to support the trainee in finding its purpose and goal which needs to come from the inside of a person. Problems may occur if a person decides to perform or to do something because of external reasons as in this case the powerful intrinsic motivation that is so vital for achievement in business and life may be missing. By finding one´s purpose in business a certain degree of imagination may be required as one needs to imagine himself doing something what he passionately loves and enjoys doing. It might be relatively easy to develop and improve upon the success oriented traits such as persistence, organized planning, decision making, specialized knowledge etc.
The focus of this work is to conduct a profound analysis of typical leadership styles and evaluate attributes that add value to the productivity levels for a project manager. Influences project success has not been fully explored nor has the techniques of effective leadership in the project environments primary major challenge is that projects continue to fail due to ineffective leadership.

Currently, there is very little information and limited understanding of the relations between leadership styles, project success. Therefore, this will be an essential point of our analysis and will be included as part of the survey to investigate further critical components required for project
