Home Business & Finance Distance Leadership in International Corporations: Why Organizations Struggle when Distances Grow
This chapter described the methodological approach taken by this research. It aimed at defining the research question: How do physical distance, relationship quality, and interaction frequency impact the influence of leadership behavior on follower self-leadership and performance in international corporations? The research model illustrated the variables that assist in addressing the research question. Perceptions of leadership behaviors according to the FRL served as predictor variables, assessing transformational, transactional, and passive leadership. On the other hand, self-leadership and performance were recognized as work-related outcome variables. The focus of analysis was still placed on the assessment of potential influences of physical distance, relationship quality, and interaction frequency. The study took place following a cross-sectional design in the context of 19 business units of international corporations in the technology industry with at least 10,000 employees.
