This chapter addresses the issues regarding leadership. It is well noted through the examination of literature that various places have different cultures. This informs the leadership style adopted. The qualities of a good leader are people skills, good judgment, as well as integrity. Cultures differ in their implicitness regarding culture. The behavioral tendencies and leadership style can be an asset or a weakness depending on the context of the culture. Good leadership therefore is an asset in differing places. Through literature review, it is thus brought to light that the various regions have different cultural settings that are important for the application of leadership practice that could boost business performance consequentially.
