The turbulent global environment and the current conditions in the economy are forcing agribusiness companies for a fast and flexible adaptation to the changes. A precondition for that is an effective system of management and application of appropriate leadership style. The management is a process of creating and maintaining a business environment where individuals work in teams to achieve the set goals. The leadership as a function of management involves the establishment of interpersonal relationships, leadership, employee motivation and communication. The purpose of this paper is to determine the capacity of managers as leaders of certain organizational levels in enterprises in the field of agricultural business. Considering the absence or presence of certain characteristics, it is estimated the extent to which managers express their leadership potential. To achieve the goal of the research, we applied the method of questionnaire survey conducted in ten medium-sized enterprises (from 50-250 employees) in the field of agribusiness in Republic of Macedonia, at a strategic, tactical and operational management level. The results from the conducted survey indicate that managers in agribusiness companies mostly expressed tendency to think like leaders and their behavior is close to modern knowledge for effective leadership. In the agricultural business sector in Republic of Macedonia predominates the known and stable management practice. It is a fact that the dynamic business environment of the food industry requires particularly high professionalism, innovation and ability to coordinate their leading personnel. Regarding the actuality of the topic of leadership and its importance for the business success of the company, this research provides an overview of the functions of management in some selected Macedonian enterprises in the area of agricultural business.
