The research recorded the respondents’ opinions and attitudes within the local public administration in Călăraşi county, on the identification of the specific leadership skills and behaviors. The research method used was the survey, having as a research tool a semi-standardized questionnaire, with a total of 12 questions applied to 209 persons within the 37 town halls in Călăraşi county. It is found out that the persons with secondary education perceive the leaders within the organization as having an authoritarian leadership style, while the persons with higher education perceive the leaders as having a collaborative/participatory leadership style. Also, depending on the sector in which it operates, the employees of the public administration institutions in the rural areas tend to practice an authoritarian leadership style, while the employees of the town halls in the urban area tend to a collaborative leadership style. The two aspects correlate, as in the town halls in the rural area, most employees and local councelors have only secondary education, while in the urban area the situation is changing in favor of the employees with higher education.
