The productivity of the nursing team is directly related to job satisfaction, which in turn is influenced by the leadership style adopted by nurse managers. The quality of care provided by nurses will reflect in the success of the health institution. Frustration at work increases the turnover of nurses and decreases the quality of care. The study aimed to contextualize the influence of the nurse manager’s leadership on nurses’ job satisfaction. It is a study based on literature about leadership and nurses’ job satisfaction. Leaders who act as mentors and monitors, supporting their teams, communicating clearly, providing feedback, and being role models will have a positive influence on nurses. No one style of leadership will be ideal for all occasions, thus leaders need to be able to adapt and change styles according to different situations. Nurse managers should keep improving themselves through leadership training, self-assessment, self-awareness, and self-compassion to better understand the nursing team members’ needs and lead with competence, increasing nurses’ job satisfaction and retention.
