How does National culture, influence leadership? By asking this question we have started discussing this culture and its effect on leadership, also the Importance of culture in a variety of different aspects.
It mentioned that culture is what's seen as acceptable norm of behavior and what people get used to. I think many principles of culture have been in the society's category of unquestionable for a long time.
We’ve seen differences between cultures and what’s expected from leaders and the different views of leadership style.
As it's known in the western world family relations do not have any effects on leadership and they rarely consider this factor when they recruit people regardless of the qualification. However, it’s quite different in the Eastern world that family relations have a strong influence on the leaders' style and relations are considered as a major part when they hire someone. From my point of view, family structure plays a major role into that, for instance, nuclear family and extended family. And I strongly believe in long term life this will cause huge problem, because many un-educated people will take a good position unfairly!! And those who have been well educated and don’t have any relatives, who are in high positions, will play in the street with his/her qualification.
