Description

As global companies access business opportunities in other countries, culture and leadership practices become critical issues. Thus, it was timely that this study examined the effects of national culture on leadership behavior of Americans, Jamaicans, and Bahamians. These countries were chosen because of Jamaica's and the Bahamas strong relationship with the United States (eco-nomic interdependence). MBA students attending classes in these countries and holding leadership positions within their respective organizations participated in the study. The results in addition to confirming other cross-cultural researchers' work that the values and attitudes of individuals vary from country, al-so identifies that there are differences in leadership behavior across countries.
