This study was conducted to measure the employees’ commitment as outcomes of leadership styles- transformational and transactional. Data was collected from three hundred and twelve (312) private sector colleges’ teachers through two time tested questionnaires, The Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire (MLQ-5x/Short Form) (Bass & Avolio, 1995) and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire (Porter et al., 1974). Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS 15 Version) was used for data operation. Pearson correlation revealed a significant positive relationship between transformational leadership style and employees’ commitment and transactional leadership style and employees’ commitment. Multiple Regressions indicated that the transactional leadership had 31% impact on employees’ commitment and transformational leadership had 49% impact on employees’ commitment.
