Abstract

In this article, we examine the structural stability of a three-dimensional model of managerial competencies across 11 non-Asian countries (Brazil, Colombia, Ireland, Germany, Greece, Mexico, Peru, Poland, Russia, Spain and the United States) and 4 Asian countries (China, Pakistan, Philippines and Thailand). The results indicate that the three competency dimensions (external, interpersonal and personal) are stable across countries. We further investigate potential variation across countries in terms of the weight allocated to different competencies. We discovered that Asian countries place heavier emphasis on external and interpersonal dimensions; non-Asian countries tend more toward the personal dimension. In addition, key managerial implications, particularly with regard to leadership development, are discussed.
