  6. Does a leader's consideration always decrease employee's stress? From the perspective of cross-cultural differences, Kiriko SAKATA, Atsuko KANAI, Gregory A. Laurence, Jinkook Tak, The 31st International Congress of Psychology, 2016/07/25, Without Invitation, Yokohama, JAPAN, Previous research conducted in Europe and the US has consistently suggested an association between consideration of leaders and lower stress responses in employees. Can the stress reduction effects of leaders' consideration be generalized across cultures? The association between two types of leadership behaviors (initiation of structure and consideration) and employees work stress (working hours, enjoyment of work, drive to work, and burnout) was investigated in six countries. Results indicated that participants in all six countries indicated a meditational effect of work enjoyment on the negative correlation between leaders' consideration and emotional exhaustion of employees. However, only Japanese participants showed a positive relationship between leaders' consideration and employee's drive to work and working hours, with drive to work being positively related to emotional exhaustion. These results indicate the significance of taking a cross-cultural perspective in investigations of relationships between leadership and stress.
