This paper aims at examining the impact of leadership development strategies on employee task performance. This study adapted coaching/mentoring, training/development, and integration/delegation as strategies of leadership development, while the contingency theory was adapted as the theoretical foundation for the study. Findings revealed that the combined effect of these identified factors has an impact on employee task performance. The leadership development strategies prove a synergic effect and increase the overall employee task performance. The paper concludes that leadership development strategies have a significant impact on employee task performance thus we recommend that management should ensure that relevant coaching and mentoring programs are put in place to help employees improve their level of task performance, and continuous training should be organized for employees to improve their level of performance.
