Participative behaviour of organisational leaders: The perspective of the Bhutanese corporate sector

Chhophel, Tandin (2015) Participative behaviour of organisational leaders: The perspective of the Bhutanese corporate sector. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


Explored in this study are the participative behaviour of organisational leaders in the emerging for-profit sector in Bhutan. Leaders engage primarily in verbal participative behaviour with subordinates when making organisational decisions especially if they believe in the importance of the contribution of participation to organization effectiveness. Leaders who believe in high power distance however are less likely to engage in both verbal participative behaviour and consultative participative behaviour. The research contributes to our understanding of participative decision making by identifying dimensions of participative behavior in the context of emerging economies.
