What Leadership Looks Like in Different Cultures

What Leadership Looks Like in Different Cultures | Creating new possibilities |

What makes a great leader? Although the core ingredients of leadership are universal (good judgment, integrity, and people skills), the full recipe for successful leadership requires culture-specific condiments. The main reason for this is that cultures differ in their implicit theories of leadership, the lay beliefs about the qualities that individuals need to display to be considered leaders. Depending on the cultural context, your typical style and behavioral tendencies may be an asset or a weakness. In other words, good leadership is largely personality in the right place.

Research has shown that leaders’ decision making, communication style, and dark-side tendencies are influenced by the geographical region in which they operate. Below we review six major leadership types that illustrate some of these findings.

What do you get when you cross your grandmother’s advice with the latest research in neuroscience?


According to Eric J. McNulty, this unlikely intersection holds the key to being a good leader. As the director of research at the National Preparedness Leadership Initiative, McNulty is often asked to recommend the latest and greatest reads on leadership. What he’s discovered is that books on brain science serve up sage insights more often than the traditional title penned from the corner office. He’s also observed that scientific research on the brain reveals what his grandma knew all along.

Effective leadership is a combination of common sense, patience and emotional iq. Similar to things you learn in kindergarten. My favorite McNulty thought is the one on Let me sit with that for a bit. Just because you aren’t doing something, it doesn’t mean that your brain isn’t working.

Sometimes we just try to over-think issues.  Give your brain a rest and more often than not a clear decision will emerge.
