Management Styles Effective managers will use a management style that best fits the situation. Manager-and-employee interactions may include the following variations: Power/distance: In countries like Mexico, India etc. have high power/distance between management and subordinates. Here the management style is more autocratic as compared to countries like USA, Germany, Great Britain etc. Individualism/collectivism: The concept of I vs We. In individualized countries such as USA, Germany, Britain etc workers believe they can take care of themselves and do not prefer to work for an authoritarian manager. Where as in collective countries like Japan, China etc. employees may be included in some decision making.
Management styles Uncertainty avoidance: The level of threat people feel from Uncertainty(changing workplace environment conditions). Countries with high uncertainty avoidance (less uncertainty) have cultures where management process are less adaptable to change.
