  • Abstract The impact of the 2008 Wall Street financial crisis has forced many global economies into difficulties. Around the world, many business organizations have collapsed while the ones that have survived are seeking breakthroughs. The leaders of these surviving enterprises work on attaining organizational development through organizational changes.  
    Due to globalization, Taiwanese executives are playing pivotal roles in multinational companies. Through in-depth interviews, this study explores whether different organizational cultures impact leadership styles and behaviors of Taiwanese executives. What are the critical factors for successful transformation? How do leadership styles influence organizational changes? Do different firms exercise different models and procedures to effect organizational changes?
    The propositions gathered from this study are as follow:
    Proposition 1: If the organizational culture emphasizes on innovation, then executives will exhibit higher supportive and charismatic leadership styles
    Proposition 2: Leaders must have keen observation of the environment and high sensitivity to the market to implement changes early to enhance competitiveness.
    Proposition 3: The selection, nurturing and retention of junior and senior managers are the key factors that affect organizational development and competitiveness
    Proposition 4: The decision-making and execution skills of executives are success factors for organizational transformation.
    Proposition 5: Leadership and organizational commitment are critical factors for organizational growth.
