Leadership Methods With Various Cultures from around the World

Culture is the characteristics and knowledge of a particular group of people, defined by everything from arts, beliefs, customs, language, religion, cuisine, social habits, music and other products of human work and thought considered as a unit. Cultural diversity is where many cultures are mixed together.

Linear-Active Culture tend to be task oriented, highly organized planners who complete action-chains by doing one thing at a time, preferably in accordance with a linear agenda.

Multi-Active Culture are loquacious, impulsive, like to do many things at a same time and attach great importance to feelings, relationships and people-orientation.

Reactive Cultures rarely initiate action or discussion, preferring first to listen to and establish the other's position, then react to it and formulate their own. Reactive cultures listen before they leap.

As per Richard Lewis's Cultural Catagories - linear-active, multi-active and reactive - classifies the culture of a leader defined by the culture he/she lived as a child.
Cultural diversitly in the workplace offers more challenges than benefits without an understanding about how to harness it in the service of collegiality and productivity. With sound leadership commitment, the organization will become increasingly inclusive. As inclusion increases, the organization is more harmonious – aligned and productive. Implementing diversity management best practices can move the organization to higher stages of inclusion. An inclusive organization enjoys collegial relationships that support a civil, harmonious place to work. The result is higher employee engagement and productivity.
