ABSTRACT
The Anglo Cluster comprises Australia, Canada. England. Ireland. New Zealand. South Africa (White sample), and the United States of America. These countries are all developed nations, predominantly English speaking, and were all once British colonies. Today, they are amongst the wealthiest countries in the world. The GLOBE results show that the Anglo Cluster is characterized by an individualistic performance orientation. Further, although they value gender equality, the Anglo Cluster countries tend to be male-dominated in practice. Effective leadership in the Anglo cultures is affected by a combination of charismatic inspiration and a participative style.© 2002 Elsevier Science Inc. All rights reserved
