Servant Leadership Theory Cross-Culturally: A Comparative Study Between India and the United States
by Carroll, Brian C., Ph.D., Regent University, 2013, 170; 3578595
Abstract (Summary)

This research study investigated the theoretical servant leadership constructs (love, humility, altruism, trust, vision, empowerment, and service) developed by Patterson (2003) within the southern Asian cultural context of India and the Anglo cultural context of the United States. The researcher also investigated the causal relationships of the seven constructs of this servant leadership model by using simple and multiple regression to test these relationships. The researcher also used a t test for the similarities and differences between the two cultures. This study provided empirical cross-cultural validation of Patterson's theory in India. Overall, this study found both a high degree of statistical significance and a high degree of confidence that organizational leaders in both cultural samples within the information technology industry exhibit Patterson’s model of servant leadership, providing a strong foundation for future investigation into these relationships.
