The purpose of this article is to describe the leadership style that character-izes managers in Barquisimeto, State of Lara, Venezuela. Field research of the ex-ploratory, cross-sectional type was carried out. A 360-degree assessment (self: 80, peer: 160, coordinaron 80 and partners: 160) that took into account the four (4) perspectives of leadership considered by Bolman and Deal (1995), the struc-tural, symbolic, human resource and policy perspectives, was applied to a sample of 80 (eighty) managers. Results show that the managers have a slight tendency to over evalúate themselves positively on aü leadership perspectives compared to assessments made by others (the coordinator, peers and collaborators); they tend to prefer structural and symbolic leadership styles almost equally, with an ori-entation toward human resources in second place and toward policy to a lesser extent.
