Exploring the limits of Western leadership theory in East Asia and Africa

Peter Blunt, Merrick L. Jones

Research output: Contribution to journalComment/debate

Abstract

Contends that the vacuum left by the collapse of colonial empires has been filled by new forms of cultural and ideological imperialism conceived largely in the West. Signs of the new imperialism are to be found in many fields including human resource management. Explores this theme, focusing particularly on ideas about leadership. Examines leadership patterns in East Asia and Africa. Suggests that no single model of leadership can accommodate significant variations in societal culture and their influence on organizational behaviour.
