The aim of the research is to test the impact of the leadership styles in the not for-profit organizations and its relevance to the employees' job satisfaction and their intention to quit. This study is to investigate two different leadership styles; Transformational and Transactional leadership style, whether or not a correlation between them exists and the employeess job satisfaction and consequently if this lead them to have the intention to quit from their organization. A comparative survey was done between two Not- for-profit organizations. The population for this survey is 48 questionnaires distributed to the two organizations (36) in the first organization and (12) for the second organization. Employees of different hierarchical levels, different age and level of responsibility were asked to fill in the survey. The data were examined by SPSS, a statistical analysis package. The findings of the study show that there was insignificance relationship between the intention to quit and transformational and transactional leadership styles. In addition, the study also found an insignificant relationship between the intention to quit and the employeess job satisfactions. One of the key recommendations of the study is that the head of an organization should take care of the employeess awareness to the types of leadership in order to increase their health of their employment in the organization. They have to look to the other factors that retain employees in their organizations in Egypt rather than the leadership styles of leaders managing them. This can reduce the employees in their organizations that have the intention to quit.
