Several studies have proposed existing relationships between personality and leadership, as well as between gender and the way people lead, however, few studies are developed with Latin American leaders and correlate the three variables (personality, gender and leadership), therefore, the study seeks to identify the mode in which personality influences the way of leading and the differences that occur between men and women. For this, information was collected from 498 people, men and women, by self-application of the Spanish versions of the Kouzes and Posner leadership practices instrument (IPL) and the Myers Briggs type indicator (MBTI); The information was analyzed using SPSS version 25 statistical software, finding that in Colombian leaders the MBTI personality types correlate with the leadership practices of the IPL, with statistically significant differences between men and women. The study determined, among others, that personality types and gender influence the way women and men lead in Colombia.
