Abstract

Developing charismatic leaders in the 21st century must include fostering the cultural awareness skills for effectively managing employees from many new and unique backgrounds. The purpose of this quantitative study was to determine if there was a correlation between cultural intelligence (CI) and transformational leadership (TL) attributes of managers at American Fortune 500 companies. The data results indicated that there was a statistically significant positive relationship between the CI and the TL abilities of managers. The conclusion drawn from the findings provide new information to theory of cultures when CI and TL constructs are compared. It is recommended that American Fortune 500 leaders continue to strengthen culture-specific awareness’s through educational and personal pursuits.
