COMPARATIVE STUDY OF THE PERCEPTIONS OF MEXICAN AND COLOMBIAN MANAGERS AND NON-MANAGERS ABOUT MANAGERIAL AND LEADERSHIP BEHAVIOURAL EFECTIVENESS
This qualitative cross-case comparative study explored the similarities and differences in the perceptions of Mexican and Colombian employees about effective and infective managerial and leadership behavior. Our study found a significant number of similarities in the manner that Mexicans and Colombians perceive what makes managers effective and infective. Despite some variances in the cultures of these two countries, our findings suggest that culture may not play an important role in the perception about managerial behavioral effectiveness. The findings of our study could be relevant to human resource professionals in the preparation of executives for international assignments in Mexico and Colombia.
