Impact of Culture

People who travel in other areas of the world have experienced many distinctions between cultures. To help us understand the unique characteristics of those cultures, Geert Hofstede provided a list of the major cultures with a description of the main characteristics of each. Hofstede’s information provides help for the regency-leader to clarify the potential for cultural misunderstanding.

However, because of a regency-leader’s value for individual people, the regency leader also recognizes the uniqueness of each individual within each unique culture. As helpful as Hofstede’s dimensions may be, they do not provide a leader with the information to deal with any one person Next Pagewho will be unique even within his or her own culture. Regency-leaders should avoid “coarse identity classifications” because people are too complex for generalization. For maximum communication there is no shortcut; a leader must get to know others one person at a time.  In regency-leadership development, it is critical to teach developing regency-leaders to recognize and honor each individual’s uniqueness.
