An Opportunity for East and West to Share Leadership: A Multicultural Analysis of Shared Leadership Preferences in Global Teams.
Herbert, Kendall; Mockaitis, Audra; Zander, Lena
This study investigates the relationship between cultural values and shared leadership preferences, using a sample of 357 potential globally dispersed team members. A signi fi cant positive relationship between both horizontal individualism and horizontal collectivism and shared leadership preferences is identi fi ed. We also fi nd signi fi cant dif- ferences in individual-level cultural values between Asian and non-Asian respondents. Shared leadership preferences exhibited fewer differences, suggesting the possibility for sharing leadership in multicultural teams. Our fi ndings add to the literature by detailing the relationship between cultural values and shared leadership preferences, and furthering our understanding of contemporary team leadership preferences among Asians and non- Asians.
