MRG's research finding revealed significant differences in leadership culture between the United States and several major European countries, including Germany, Sweden and the Netherlands. In contrast, the study found that leadership approaches in Canada and Australia are very similar to that in the United States.

"At the individual level, these finding can help leaders better prepare for international assignments," said David Ringwood, VP of EMEA Client Development. "At an organizational level, this information can be of value when leaders are striving for global alignment, building business in other countries, minimizing conflict, increasing understanding among team members, working cooperatively, and merging visions and values."
