Abstract:

Managers from eight countries were studied to test three hypotheses 1 The traits that managers considered important for success would differ between cultures. 2 The mode of supervisor-subordinate relations preferred by managers would vary between cultures. 3 The differences among cultures in preferences for modes of supervisor-subordinate relations would be related to differences in traits managers considered important for success. All three hypotheses were confirmed. The implications of these findings are discussed in terms of related data on intercultural differences in corporate objectives and managerial values. Author
