The study sets a goal to examine the influence of the perceived style of leadership (transformational, transactional, laissez-faire) and innovativeness – on individual and organizational level. This topic considered to be rather popular in case of modern tendencies of business development. Russian organizations now more frequently turn to the measurement and research tools of innovations in purpose to prepare the base for implementation and development of innovation ideas. We have made a successful attempt of implementation and approbation of western measures on the Russian sample (employees of Russian IT-company; n = 103). To analyze the data we used linear regression analysis and a comparison of average using the T-student criterion. The study found that transformational and transactional styles of leadership positively influence the organizational innovations, while laissez-faire style of leadership negatively influences on innovations and the consequences of leadership. The results confirm the previous studies and open the new horizons for future research of leadership and innovations in Russia.
