The size of study population was 2682 employees and the sample size was 391 individuals and it was a random stratified sample. Moreover, the statistical analysis program "SPSS" was used as a statistical package for entering and processing data and testing hypotheses. The study found that there is a statistically significant relationship between strategic leadership practices and external environment variables. Also, external environment variables (together) have an impact on strategic leadership practices by a percentage of 51% (adjusted R2 = 0.51). Furthermore, there is a statistically significant relationship between strategic leadership practices and organizational environment variables. In addition, organizational environment variables (together) have an impact on strategic leadership practices by a percentage of 45.6% (adjusted R2 = 0.456). The researcher recommends that it is necessary to monitor the indicators of different external environment variables with focusing on economic, political and legal environment.
