Title: Cultural differences and organizational leadership: Cultural difference as barriers to the trans-cultural application of the concept of organizational leadership
Author: Matic, Jennifer
Abstract: This study examined the impact of cultural differences on the trans-cultural application of the concept of organizational leadership. The significance of four cultural dimensions (power distance, uncertainty avoidance, individualism, and masculinity) (Hofstede, G., 1980) towards the concept of organizational leadership (Rost, J.C, 1991) was discussed and a survey as created to test for cultural differences from a leadership perspective. American and Croatian college students then completed the survey. Results showed cultural similarities for all cultural dimensions with the exception of uncertainty avoidance, which was found to be higher for the American sample than the Croatian. Consequently, it can be said that organizational leadership may be easier to apply in Croatia than in the United States.
