Initiatives -
The main objectives of the GLOBE study are to answer the following fundamental questions: * Are there leader behaviours, that are universally accepted and effective across cultures and are there such behaviours that are differentially accepted and effective across cultures? In this study, aspects of societal cultures, and the cultures and practices of organizations in which individual respondents work, will be measured along with preferred leader attributes. Combining the total set of preferred attributes for outstanding leadership identifies the prototype of outstanding or highly effective leaders within the different countries. The information gained through this project will be useful for understanding how leaders in various societal and organizational cultures can be effective and for identifying the constraints imposed on leaders by cultural norms, values and beliefs (House, 1993).
