Cultures have consequences: A configural approach to leadership across two cultures
The Leadership Quarterly

This research compares the influence of country membership and cultural values (power distance and individualism/collectivism) in a model of LMX and organizational change. The results reveal cultural differences in the relationships among LMX consultation and affective commitment to organizational change supporting prior studies. However there are substantial differences in the moderation of the cultural values in the relationships among the research constructs at the individual level. Our results suggest that understanding national culture and its influence on leadershipmay be incomplete when we focus only on mean differences at the country level to examine cross-cultural
differences. To address this concernwe offer a configural approach to examine the role of culture in a leadership model across two cultures (the U.S. and Korea).
