Speaker: Paul Hanges Master Teacher: Marcus Dickson In this presentation, Dr. Hanges discusses recent work establishing the influence of national culture on the attributes people desire in their leaders. He will discuss social information processing to explain the psychological mechanism by which people are believed to identify others as leaders. Dr. Hanges will go on to discuss the results of a 62 nation study in which the relationship between societal culture and leader attributes are tested. Some universally desirable attributes of leaders will be discussed as well as culturally contingent attributes. Finally, recent work demonstrating that this cross-cultural work is connected to practical issues of concern to organizations will be discussed.
