Competitive pressures have increased demand to effectively lead global and multi-cultural organizations. This phenomenological research gathered data, allowed significant themes to emerge, and described the participants' shared experiences of those aspects of leadership that compel (or inhibit) members of an organization to willingly change their actions (as reported by the participants). Seven participated from the President's Staff of a successful organization experiencing globally competitive forces. The research method included a triangulation of individual interviews, a group interview, and observations of non-verbal communications. Findings included top five positive and top five negative leadership aspects with a preference for experiencing less of the negative. Further research needs included discovering more about negative attributes and creating new self development methods for leaders.
