    Description: In a study of employed adult business people, comparisons of preferred leader behaviour prototypes (as defined by the LeaderBehaviour Description Questionnaire XII) were carried out between Iceland, a culturally homogeneous nation, and Lithuania a culturally non-homogenous nation. The main aim of the study was to determine whether cultural homogeneityis a good indicator of uniform views of followers’ towards preferred leader behaviour. Furthermore, the study aimed at contributing to leadership theory and research by providing empirical data from two under-researched countries.The third aim of the study was to provide expatmanagers working in Iceland or/and Lithuaniain sights into more effective leader behaviour in these countries. Results of the empirical research indicate that followers’ attitudes towards preferred leaderships are different, with respondents from Iceland having very uniform views, while those from Lithuania have very diverse views when evaluating leader behaviour preferences.This can be due to the relative homogeneity of national cultures. Overall comparison of the two countries indicates that Iceland and Lithuania differ significantly in 7 out of 12 preferred leader behaviour dimensions, which confirm culture specific attitudes towards desired leader behaviour and hence is coherent with cross-cultural leadership literature. Managerial implications of these differences are discussed in length, which can serveas guidelines for expat managers of both countries in increasing business transactions between Iceland and Lithuania.

    Description: Purpose - This paper aims to present a meta-analysis of available statistical data and literature for gender-related practices concerning women in business and education across countries, comparing the patriarchal belt and South Asian countries in the belt to the rest of the world. The purpose of the project is to investigate the progress of enhancement of opportunities for women to engage in non-agricultural work in the belt, and, as women's participation in tertiary education is touted as an impetus in enhancing women's opportunities, investigate its effect. Design/methodology/approach - The existence of a belt of countries from North Africa through Bangladesh and rural China is well known, with societies demonstrating a consistent pattern of restriction and suppression of women. No development of theory treating the patriarchal belt as a whole has been published. The authors earmark this as a future endeavour. They employ ten years of statistical summaries of percent of women in the non-agricultural labour force and ratios of women to men in tertiary education provided by the United Nations in support of the UN Millennium Development Goals to compare changes in these activities in countries in the patriarchal belt, South Asia, and the rest of the world. The method is to carry out statistical comparisons of trends derived from annual averages for the two measures. Findings - The literature review indicates that for millennia in the patriarchal belt societal practices have institutionalised women's lack of access to participation in the labour market and generally from participating in much of public life. The analyses indicate that participation in non-agricultural employment has decreased over the past decade in the belt compared to the rest of the world. Opportunities for women to participate in tertiary education have on average been increasing during this period for most countries of the world including those in the patriarchal belt. However, this circumstance has not led to increased participation in the non-agricultural work force. Practical implications - The practical implications seen are that the UN Millennium Development Goals (UNMDG) are important to improving the lot of individuals, some goals that purport to lead to improvements in human and gender rights in regions such as the patriarchal belt may have no real effect, and other, more useful goals need to be investigated. Economically, the exclusion of women from voluntary productive labour as detrimental to the development of a nation is seen. Social implications - In the patriarchal belt societal practices institutionalise negative discrimination concerning women, often codified in laws that prohibit women from participating in much of public life or fully competing in the labour market. The evaluation of these conditions using European and North American standards proposes that these women are abused and denied their rights. Nonetheless, initiatives such as agreements on the UNMDG appear to have no effect, and other solutions need to be pursued. Originality/value - The originality and value of this paper is that it investigates the complete set of patriarchal belt countries, across countries that include both Muslim and Hindu majorities. It concludes that while religions tenets are employed to justify patriarchal practices, long-standing tribal practices appear to be far more influential.

    Description: To determine and describe 'mainstream US culture' responses to the Schwartz Values Survey version 57 were collected and analyzed amongst two samples, one from 49 states, disregarding state of residence, and another from 27 US states comparing samples by state, with the 27-state populations representing about 82 % of the total US population. Statistical comparisons indicate that the responses of the samples categorised by the total US and state of residence samples and Schwartz' ten individual cultural values show a cohesive mainstream US culture of the White, generally middle class population, having high motivational value priorities for self-direction, universalism and benevolence, with lowest priorities for power and achievement. We found significant value priority differences between urban and rural residents, but minimal differences relating to gender.

    Description: Several articles by Sean Seymour and Julie Ray summarize a Gallup-Purdue University study reported Nov 20, 2014, based upon the Gallup-Purdue Index, a joint-research effort with Purdue University and Lumina Foundation, to study the relationship between the university experience and graduates' lives. The Gallup-Purdue Index is a comprehensive, nationally representative study of US college graduates with Internet access, conducted February 4-Mar 7, 2014. According to a 2013 Census Bureau report, 90% of university graduates in the US have access to the Internet. Recent graduates who strongly agree they had an internship or job where they could apply what they were learning in college are not only more likely to have full-time employment, they are also more likely to be satisfactorily engaged at work. Fifty-six percent of employed recent graduates who took part in applied internships are engaged at work -- meaning they are involved in and enthusiastic about their work -- compared with 33% of those who did not.

    Description: Purpose The purpose of this paper is to refine and validate the most widely used leader behavior measurement instrument, LBDQXII, into a more parsimonious instrument for assessing cognitive templates of preferred leader behavior across cultures. Design/methodology/approach The 100-item LBDQXII survey was administered to 6,451 participants from 14 countries; these data were used to refine the survey. Findings The shorter survey instrument is a valid and reliable tool for assessing preferred leader behavior. Four periods in the LBDQXII “evolution” are identified: emergence, expansion, stagnation and revival. Research limitations/implications The new LBDQ50 can be used to collect data across cultures, contributing to both global management development and scholarly studies. Practical implications This project corresponds to calls to shorten the well-established leader behavior instrument into a measurement tool that is reliable and valid across cultures and languages. This can be administered by both private and public organizations, contributing to greater effectiveness. Furthermore, it retains its scholarly scope encompassing follower-centric studies of leadership. Social implications Leadership processes are found in all aspects of life and can be better understood and improved within and across cultures using the shorter version. Originality/value An efficient instrument to measure preferred leadership behavior across and within cultures. The availability of the LBDQ50 will allow practitioners and researchers to advance understanding of preferred leadership behavior as a predictor of organizational effectiveness. Most such instruments are overly-long, which hinders data collection opportunities. This newly developed instrument can lead to better response rates and easier applicability in organizational settings. submittedVersion

    Description: Do traditional, gender-based expectations and widely disseminated notions of African culture apply to preferred leadership behaviors in African nations? This study examines leadership preferences of working adults in Ghana, Kenya, and Zambia using the Leader behavior Description Questionnaire-XII (LBDQXII), a theoretical model of explicit leader behavior. Contrary to the premises of Social Role Theory, males and females did not differ significantly in their preferences for the 12 leadership behaviors represented in the LBDQXII. The behaviors of Initiating Structure and Integration were most preferred, and the behaviors of Tolerance of Uncertainty and Tolerance of Freedom were the least preferred. Based on socio-cultural experiences at the nation-level, findings revealed that working adults in Ghana and Zambia have comparable leadership behavior preferences, with similarities found for seven of 12 leadership behaviors. Working adults in Kenya, however, with dissimilar socio-cultural experiences compared to Ghana and Zambia, reported different preferences for 10 of the 12 leadership behaviors. Overall, our findings revealed that popular generalizations that view African nations with singular assumptions are not warranted.
