  • Abstract This paper is concerned with the analysis of the impacts of Dr. David Cameron’s theory of positive leadership in Eastern and Western cultures at the example of France, Germany, Taiwan (R.O.C.) and the Philippines. The research aims to find out whether positive leadership behaviors enable positively deviant performance in all these countries and whether Western cultures are more receptive of these behaviors than Eastern cultures. Employees from the four countries of interest have been surveyed to analyze whether leaders from these four cultures already apply positive leadership behaviors and how these behaviors impact the employees. The difference in correlations between the positive leadership behaviors and the impacts these positive leadership behaviors have on the employees is then analyzed to understand, which countries are more receptive to these behaviors. The findings of the research show that positive leadership behaviors have positive impacts on all four countries, but also confirm that there are significant differences in the impact these behaviors have on the employees in the four countries. It is revealed that the implementation of positive leadership in Western cultures has greater benefits than in Asian cultures.
