Many organizations strive to be transnational. This means that individuals with different cultural background will work together. Countries around the world have their own culture, which mark the way individual’s think and act. Different values between leaders and their subordinates are often a key factor to misunderstandings and conflicts in transnational organisations. To lead across borders can be a huge challenge for expatriate leaders. What might be an effective way to lead in one country, may not necessary be effective in an another. Thus, a leader may need to adjust to the culture he/she works in to be successful.

The purpose of the thesis is to compare how leaders from two different countries, Sweden and Germany, behave. Even thought the study showed that the leaders have different leadership styles, there are no significant differences between how they behave.
