The main purpose of this study is to determine the optimal style of leadership for managing non-profit organization. The study was put forward the following hypothesis: transformational leadership style is the most appropriate for NGO management. To achieve this goal were made all the formulated tasks. We used the following methods of research: theoretical literature analysis, content analysis of theoretical concepts, questionnaires with elements of quantitative and qualitative data analysis. Empirical base of the research consists of the data of the survey of 20 leaders of NGOs. A small number of respondents was a limitation of this study. For validation of the received data required more extensive research. However, the available amount still allows us to make preliminary conclusions on the current situation with the leadership in the nonprofit sector, to identify problem areas and recommendations. During the study of the problems of leadership in nonprofit organizations was identified a number of features that distinguish managerial environment of nonprofit organizations from the administrative environment organizations of other sectors. These features were included in the questionnaire, which conducted a survey of CEOs of non-profit organizations. Based on the results of the study, we would like to highlight the fact that, in the opinion of the majority of NGO leaders, transformational leadership style is most appropriate for managing non-profit organization. In addition, the leadership style of the majority of CEOs of non-profit organizations is transformational. Therefore, we can say that in the course of research we partially confirm our hypothesis, first in theoretical block, and then the practical results of the study.
