2 ABSTRACT The research report presents a critical literature review on the issue of the relationship between strategic leadership and organizational performance. For this, both theoretical and empirical studies were evaluated and discussed. The findings of the literature review point out that the relationship between strategic leadership and organizational performance has been analyzed from diverse perspectives in theoretical and empirical studies. But existing research studies have criticized strategic leadership on the basis of the distributed leadership approach, as being narrowly focused on the senior management team. It is concluded that strategic leadership will have a significant impact on organizational performance by improving the non-financial measures that are related to the triple bottom line of the company and thereby also driving financial performance.
