What do the following leaders have in common? Barrack Obama, Mother Theresa,
Nelson Mandela, Sheryl Sandberg, and Ghandi? They are all recognised across different countries, and through their cross-cultural awareness, they shaped cultures and values. Against the backdrop of globalisation, there is increasing demand for such leaders who are capable of transforming workplace cultures and values. Leaders do not exist on their own, however; leadership is a behaviour. Leaders interact with their environment and their followers, co-creating organisational dynamics and cultures. In this chapter, we discuss research in psychology that demonstrates links between leadership and culture at various levels.
