Culture and Leadership Across the World: The GLOBE Book of In-Depth Studies of 25 Societies is the second major publication of GLOBE (Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness), a groundbreaking, large-scale project on international management research featuring contributions from nearly 18,000 middle managers from 1,000 organizations in 62 countries, perhaps the largest project of its kind ever undertaken. This volume effectively presents a complex collection of global research addressing the culture of particular countries, leadership qualities within those countries, and recommendations on how managers should conduct business in countries other than their own.
A massive effort with a cross-cultural focus and broad international appeal, this book explores:
- how leadership is conceptualized and enacted in its cultural milieu;
- quantitative data including middle manager questionnaires, unobtrusive measurement, and participant observation data;
- qualitative research from interviews, focus groups, and media analyses; and
- theoretical and methodological pitfalls that arise in the effort to develop universal management theories.
This book is a coherent and well-organized presentation of the findings of the GLOBE Project and will appeal to scholars in leadership, management, international business, cultural studies; and also to practicing managers.
