Webinar GLobal Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness (in Dutch)

Leiderschap als balanceringsact

Duur: 20 minuten

Het GLOBE onderzoek heeft onder meer onderzocht of er leiderschapsstijlen bestaan die universeel worden gezien als effectief en acceptabel. Het blijkt dat dit niet zo is. Alleen enkele attributen lijken universeel te worden geaccepteerd en gezien als effectief, bijvoorbeeld eerlijkheid en vertrouwen. Maar is vertrouwen een universeel begrip, in zowel betekenis als gedrag? Dat is ten zeerste de vraag. Dat betekent dat je als leider, met je eigen voorkeursstijl, er maar beter vanuit kunt gaan dat jouw stijl niet overal en altijd effectief zal zijn. En dus moet je leren…balanceren.

Deze video is een opname van de webinar van 18 maart 2021 over cross-cultureel leiderschap. De webinar was toegankelijk voor alle deelnemers aan het GLOBE2020 project die de vragenlijst voor het GLOBE Netherlands team hebben ingevuld. Hiermee bedankten wij namens het Nederlandse onderzoeksteam alle deelnemers.

The hidden influence of culture: trust

Posted August 2020

In this series I explore work-related topics where culture shows its hidden influence. This week’s topic: trust.

Trust building is an art that is not made easier by group diversity. So how come we tend to think that diversity makes our teams perform better? Because once you overcome the trust barrier between different orientations, you can tap into a source of creativity working with people who have different perceptions of success, intelligence, freedom and safety.

The hidden influence of culture: motivation

Posted July 2020

In this series I explore work-related topics where culture shows its hidden influence. This week’s topic: motivation.

Various researchers have tried to find universal categories of motivation. Yet what is motivating to one may actually be demotivating to another. I am convinced that the search for universal categories of motivators has been overlooking the influence of shared attitudes.

The hidden influence of culture: personality

Posted July 2020

In this series I explore work-related topics where culture shows its hidden influence. This week’s topic: personality.

The tendency to attribute behavior to stable, universal traits is inherently biased. It assumes a stable individual disposition to act in certain ways, independent of social or physical context. If people think so differently about personality and the role it plays in our social life, we should take this into account when we make assumptions about sources of behaviors of others. This has implications for organizational systems such as recruitment and reward systems.

The hidden influence of culture: attitudes

Posted July 2020

In this series I explore work-related topics where culture shows its hidden influence. This week’s topic: attitudes.

Our attitudes guide our behavior and our intentions. Our own behavior is often guided by our expectations of other people’s likely response to ours. Our ability to predict other people’s attitudes strongly influences our interpersonal effectiveness.
Generally speaking, people do quite well at predicting other people’s attitudes, as long as they belong to the same in-group. However, when trying to predict attitudes of out-groups, prejudice and stereotypes prove to be pour counsellors.
