Abstract: Leadership may account for up to 45 per cent of an organization’s performance (Day and Lord, 1988). As a research strand, leadership has been subject to scientific research from various angles for over 100 years, providing a plethora of definitions and research typologies, which all give merit to its ambiguity and complexity (Stogdill, 1974). One of these research ‘angles’ - cross-cultural leadership - examines the aspect of universal validity of leadership and its practices, and questions the cultural context of leadership. This paper uses the GLOBE research program methodology (House et al., 2004) as one of the most frequent studies and research approaches to cross-culture comparison of leadership practices. By comparing Slovenia and Portugal, it aims to provide managerial implications for cross-cultural leadership practices between the two selected countries and expand empirical evidence, which until now has been predominantly from large, western countries.
