This paper provides an overview of the GLOBE project, a comprehensive study of leadership and culture in 62 societies and discusses the practical implications of the study for managers and leaders. The GLOBE study identifies nine cultural and six leadership dimensions and was designed to examine a number of theoretical propositions and research questions. This paper, while emphasizing aspects of the study from the Asia Pacific region, highlights six major managerial implications of the GLOBE project ranging from more static information on the cultural attributes and leadership dimensions of specific countries or groups of countries (clusters) to more dynamic implications such as relationships between culture and leadership, and relationships between culture and societal phenomena. The paper concludes by emphasizing the significance of the GLOBE study's practical implications for global managers (including HR practitioners) in today's global business world.
