TITLE — Culture influenced leadership AUTHORS — Xiangyuan Wang and Wensong Ma SUPERVISOR — Akmal Hyder THESIS TYPE— Researchstudy DATE — April, 2013

PURPOSE — The purpose of our paper is to figure out what impact culture has on leadership and to study how cultural elements can be utilized for working with leadership more effectively

The results support that the specific aspects of charismatic/transformational leadership are strongly and universally endorsed across cultures. We also find the differences and similarities between Chinese and Swedish leadership in the globalization context. LIMITATIONS — Our study covers a small number of respondents. Therefore the study result may not be applicable to all categories of cultural influence on leadership. The result may not present all of the leadership styles in China and Sweden.
