Preparation

Select two countries in different continents or regions (for example, do not select both India and Pakistan, but rather select India and France). The two countries must have available information on their cultures and implicit leadership theories that may operate in the countries.

In order to conduct your country, culture, and leadership research, you will need to use both academic and professional resources. Information on countries, including economics, business climate, ways of doing business, and cultural profiles can be found in the Global Business Research Library Guide. You may also search scholarly literature, including management and leadership data from various countries, using the Capella library and databases such as Business Source Complete, ABI/Inform, and others. Consider your online resources carefully, and use those with research-based information versus popular blogs.
