This article discusses management science and the contextual factors that influence how employees respond to various leadership styles. Research has explored how group level collectivism might moderate the relationship between transformational leadership and employee attitudes. The author reflects on how the use of other leadership styles, such as transactional, might influence these relationships. With consideration of increased diversity within work groups and the growth of international business, cultural values and the reaction of employees to various leadership styles warrants increased attention.
