The workplace is becoming more global in nature. It is important for leaders to understand and manage these differences in workplace culture and diversity. GLOBE research identified six global leadership behaviors that are considered important in various cultures in varying degrees:
- Team oriented
- Human oriented
- Self or group protective.
Explain what each of the six terms means in terms of leadership behaviors. Choose one of the following cultures: Anglo, Latin American, or Confucian Asian and explain the similarities and differences to leadership behaviors in the culture of Saudi Arabia.
As a manager with an employee from each of those cultures (Anglo, Latin American, or Confucian Asian), explain how you might change your leadership style, or support your reasoning for expecting the employee to change behaviors to work within the Saudi Arabian culture.
