Liderazgo en directivos colombianos vs. mexicanos. Un estudio comparativo.

Translated title of the contribution: Leadership in Colombian mexican managers: A comparative study

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We compared leadership practices between a group composed of101 Colombian managers and another group composed of 121 Mexican managers. We distributed the Leadership Practices Inventory (Kouzes and Posner, 2002) to evaluate their type of leadership. The results showed that, although Colombian managers report higher scores in every practice, the pattern looks similar in both groups. The practice receiving a lower score in both groups was To Inspire while the practice with the highest score was To Model the Way, both of them related to transformational leadership. The only practices that showed significant differences between the two groups were To Model the Way, for the transformational leadership style, and To Encourage the Heart, for the transactional leadership style. We conclude that both Colombian and Mexican managers possess a similar pattern with small differences in frequency between them
