Chief executive officers (CEOs) should have a different leadership style from an organization’s culture in order to improve a firm’s performance, according to researchers at Georgia State University, Arizona State University, the University of South Australia and Auckland University of Technology.

The findings are published in The Journal of Applied Psychology.
