Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study was to examine the attributional association between servant leadership and global leadership. The research employed a correlational, hypothetical-deductive, cross-sectional quantitative research strategy with two established instruments to measure servant leadership and global leadership attributes. The sample included 413 leaders and executives of organizations in northeast Indiana in the United States. The study found a close association between servant leadership and global leadership and between individual leadership attributes of both constructs. The strength of the correlative relationship between the two leadership constructs was found to be dependent on a leader's leadership position and gender. Post hoc analysis revealed differences in servant leadership by a leader's gender and the type and size of organization. Differences in global leadership were found between leaders when moderated by size of organization and number of countries the organization does business with, but not the proportion of products or services sold to foreign countries.
