The aim of this study is to determine the relationship between leaders’ behaviour and employee service delivery among Nyamira County Government units. A total of 113 frontline employees of the 3 subcounties of Nyamira County participated in this study. Data was collected by use of a questionnaire. The validity and reliability of the research instrument was done to ascertain the suitability of the research instruments. Data collected were analyzed statistically using descriptive methods with the help of SPSS software. The correlation analysis was conducted to determine relationship between leaders’ behavior variables and employee service delivery variables. The rating of the variables of the study reveals that leaders behave in pro-subordinate manner having some weakness in pro-organizational behavior. The employee service effort was found almost perfect while the affective delivery accuses of different weakness.
