Culture and Leadership Across the World: The GLOBE Book of In-Depth Studies of 25 Societies is the second major publication of GLOBE (Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness), a groundbreaking, large-scale project on international management research featuring contributions from nearly 18,000 middle managers from 1,000 organizations in 62 countries, perhaps the largest project of its kind ever undertaken. This volume effectively presents a complex collection of global research addressing the culture of particular countries, leadership qualities within those countries, and recommendations on how managers should conduct business in countries other than their own. A massive effort with a cross-cultural focus and broad international appeal, this book explores: how leadership is conceptualized and enacted in its cultural milieu; quantitative data including middle manager questionnaires, unobtrusive measurement, and participant observation data; qualitative research from interviews, focus groups, and media analyses; and theoretical and methodological pitfalls that arise in the effort to develop universal management theories. This book is a coherent and well-organized presentation of the findings of the GLOBE Project and will appeal to scholars in leadership, management, international business, cultural studies; and also to practicing managers.

Trends in Policing: Interviews with Police Leaders Across the Globe, Volume Four is the latest installment in a series of insightful interviews with senior police executives worldwide. The book offers readers an unparalleled insider’s perspective on police goals, practices, and management in nationwide, regional, and city environments. Conducted by a team of academic and practitioner experts following the same schema of topics, the interviews explore the executives’ backgrounds, education, and careers and provide insight on a number of topics relevant to their work, including: Conception of the police mission and police role Views on strategy and tactics Experience with democratic policing Major changes in policies and procedures The relationship between police theory and practice The impact of globalization The interview participants are drawn from four continents and from a broad variety of policing contexts—from metropolitan to largely rural areas, developed and developing countries, from emerging democracies to stable democracies. They are diverse in age, ethnicity, education, background, and career trajectories. This volume constitutes a resource of immense value to academic analysts of policing philosophies and leadership, as well as to policymakers and practitioners who wish to have a sense of where the leaders in their field have come from and where they are going.

Unique in its focus, methodology, and impact, Strategic Leadership Across Cultures: The GLOBE Study of CEO Leadership Behavior and Effectiveness in 24 Countries is a must-have for those studying or practicing in the fields of global leadership, cross-cultural leadership, and organization studies. Reporting on research obtained during the third phase of the ten-year GLOBE project, the book examines strategic leadership effectiveness for executive and top-level management based on data from more than 1,000 CEOs and over 6,000 top management team members in 24 countries. Authors Robert J. House, Mary Sully de Luque, Peter Dorfman, Mansour Javidan, and Paul L. Hanges offer a series of propositions about executive leadership based on the unified theory —developed after the publication of the first GLOBE book—and empirically test these propositions. They provide evidence that leadership matters, executive leadership matters greatly, and that societal cultures influence the kind of leadership that is expected and effective.

Police leaders possess a plethora of rich experiences and practical and theoretical knowledge that provides fascinating insights into the current state of policing around the world. While observers' opinions of ongoing developments in policing are well known, it is rare to get an insider's glimpse of how police leaders themselves assess these advances. Through in-depth and exceptionally thoughtful interviews with highly placed police leaders and administrators, Trends in Policing: Interviews with Police Leaders Across the Globe presents cross-cultural perspectives on the organizational structure, leadership, functions, public projects, training, culture, and societal context of police worldwide. A broad spectrum of police philosophies from over a dozen countries This elite group of leaders and the learned researchers who interview them address the fundamental contextual changes that add layers of complexity to police work. Covering an extensive range of topics, the interviews include the experiences, opinions, and preferences of men and women who individually and as a group possess a vast array of knowledge pertaining to the problems and prospects of policing. While examining current trends, they discuss the future role of police in a world in which policing issues transcend national borders. A fruitful collaboration between practitioners and academics Through discussions with those actively engaged in policing, this book bridges the gap between research and practice. While police leaders are not usually accustomed to reflecting and writing on their experiences, the thoughtful interview style of the researchers assists the practitioners in defining their views, forming a cohesive volume rich with the wisdom of experience and the context of analysis.

Ende der 60er Jahre beschäftigte ich mich eher zufällig mit kulturellen Unterschiede- und stieß dabei auf umfangreiches Material für eine Studie. Als Ergebnis dieser Studie wurde im Jahr 1980 ein Buch zu diesem Thema mit dem Titel Culture's Consequences veröffentlicht. Es war bewußt für ein Fachpublikum geschrieben, denn es weckte Zweifel an der Allgemeingültigkeit traditioneller Lehren der Psychologie, Organisationssoziolo gie und Manag!!menttheorie: ich mußte daher sowohl die theoretische Argumentation darlegen, als auch Basisdaten und die statistischen Verfahren angeben, an hand derer ich meine Thesen aufstellte. Die 1984 erschienene Taschenbuchausgabe verzichtete auf Basisdaten und Statistik, war ansonsten aber mit der gebundenen Ausgabe von 1980 identisch. Culture's Consequences erschien in einer Zeit, als das Interesse an kulturellen Unterschie den sowohl zwischen Ländern als auch zwischen Organisationen rapide anstieg; es gab damals kaum empirisch gestützte Informationen zu diesem Thema. Die Unterschiede zwischen Ländern waren zwar auch in dem vorherigen Buch enthalten, aber vielleicht waren es zu viele auf einmal. Offensichtlich haben sich viele Leser nur mit einem Teil des Inhalts befaßt. Viele Leute, die sich auf das Buch berufen, behaupten beispielsweise, ich hätte die Wertvorstellungen von IBM-(oder "Hermes-") Führungskräften untersucht. Die von mir verwendeten Daten bezogen sich auf IBM-Mitarbeiter, und wie das Buch selbst zeigte, ist dies ein erheblicher Unterschied.

Seminar paper from the year 2017 in the subject Economics - Statistics and Methods, grade: 2,0, University of Applied Sciences Südwestfalen; Meschede, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this work is to give a short summary on the structure and on results of the GLOBE research program, as well as on a few critics’ opinions picked out of the large amount of criticism it received from others. But first the aim of such determined effort for research is explained. The GLOBE study is a 10-year research program that examines the sphere of influence which varying cultures have on managerial staff and on organizational effectiveness The word GLOBE itself is an abbreviation for ‘Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness’ To be able to construct and comprehend the survey-based research project GLOBE, all participants and readers should have the same understanding of the term culture. Since then, this research program has continued in three different but still correlated phases The first phase corresponds with the aforementioned one released in 2004, named ‘’Culture, Leadership, and Organizations: The Globe Study of 62 Societies”. The results of the second phase were released in 2007 (“Culture and Leadership across the world: The GLOBE Book of In-Depth Studies of 25 Societies”) This research pursued the former one further with regard to more detailed portrayals of leadership qualities within the 25 cultures and recommendations for managerial behavior towards other cultures. The findings of the latest phase three appeared in 2014 (“Strategic Leadership across Cultures: The GLOBE Study of CEO Leadership Behaviors and Effectiveness in 24 Societies”). The latter study shows the significance of CEOs matching their behavior to the respective society’s leadership expectations. However, the Globe 2004 study is “ground breaking in scale and scope” (Globe Foundation: About the Studies). As reported by House its findings are based on responses to surveys from 17,300 middle managers from 951 in the food processing, financial services and telecommunication sectors That is why this paper focusses on the Globe 2004 study

Daniel Goleman, Autor des Weltbestsellers Emotionale Intelligenz, präsentiert auf Basis der Psychologie und Hirnforschung revolutionäre Erkenntnisse: Unsere „soziale Intelligenz“ ist nicht nur grundlegend für den täglichen Umgang mit Fremden, Freunden, Partnern und Kollegen, sondern sie beeinflusst auch direkt unser persönliches Glück. „Soziale Intelligenz“ ist zunächst unabdingbar für das Funktionieren unserer Gesellschaft. Sie bildet aber auch die Grundlage jeder ausfüllenden zwischenmenschlichen Beziehung – sei es die zwischen Mann und Frau, Eltern und Kind oder zwischen Vorgesetzten und Mitarbeitern. Damit ist sie auch ursächlich verantwortlich für unser ganz persönliches seelisches und körperliches Wohlbefinden. Die gute Nachricht dieses Buches: Wir selbst können die Qualität dieser Beziehungen gestalten, unsere Fähigkeit zur Empathie stärken und somit unsere soziale Kompetenz verbessern.
