Objective: To analyse the relationship between leadership styles, personal values of nursing leaders and the Quality of Work Life of nurses who attend the Graduate Program in Nursing Management (PPGEn). Methods: This is a quantitative, cross-sectional study. Data were collected using the standardized instrument Quality of Working Life Questionnaire (QWLQ-bref), and an exploratory-descriptive analysis was performed.  Results: Of the 123 nurses interviewed, 64.22% rated the Quality of Work Life as satisfactory and 31.7% as very satisfactory. Through these data, the relationship between the task leadership style and professional satisfaction in the nurse's quality of life was perceived. Conclusion: The results do not point to a relationship between the managerial style of the nurse leader and the perception of Quality of Work Life. However, it is noteworthy that the Quality of Work Life describes values that go beyond the human.
