Abstract: The aim of this paper is to identify dimensions of leadership in the Slovak organizational environment. For this, the GLOBE (Global Leadership and Organization Behaviour Effectiveness) study was utilized as an empirical base. The results obtained from the research - generated via a factor analysis – have proved that implicit leadership theories do indeed exist and can be specifically defined; and these leadership factors differ from the international sample of implicit leadership theories. As a universal, a charismatic form of leadership behaviour is accepted in the Slovak organizational environment as being most effective; while as regards being culture-specific, it is proven that certain characteristics of leadership behaviours are more common in Central-Eastern-European countries – especially regarding of leadership factors in Slovak and Hungarian environments.
