Some cultures admire individuality; others venerate self-effacement. Some employees expect decisive action from the top with minimal discussion, others expect participation and to be heard. Some leaders seek to be challenged, some think it unacceptable. What should employees expect when working in different cultures? How should they adapt, and yet remain authentic? How should a leader behave towards teams with differing expectations? – When one leadership style will inspire some, yet frustrate others?
