Study of Cross-National Leadership Behaviour Preferences

Project Participants: 

Romie Littrell (Auckland University of Technology, New Zealand)

n a series of studies being undertaken defining preferred leader characteristics using the Leader Behavior Description Questionnaire XII, the definition of the traits of the "ideal leader" is being compared across national cultures. In researching the relationships between leadership and culture one takes perhaps the areas of business management, psychology, and sociology in which we find the largest diversity of opinion combined with a general paucity of experimental research. Additional studies are planned to correlate the language of the LBDQ XII and responses from multilingual subjects, and defining the points of behaviour on the leadership-management continuum.
