When I was reading Richard Lewis's book, I remembered my communication with representatives of different peoples and found confirmation of many of the features that are described in the book. The style of management largely depends on which culture the leader belongs to.

Managers in linear-active cultures will generally demonstrate a task orientation. They look for technical competence, place facts before sentiment, logic before emotion

Multi-active managers are much more extroverted, rely on their eloquence and ability to persuade and use human force as an inspirational factor.

Leaders in reactive cultures are equally people oriented but dominate with knowledge, patience and quiet control.

The book “ When Cultures Collide” Richard D. Lewis is a good guide that will help to better understand the traditions and culture of other people and avoid some misunderstandings.
