Do you consider yourself more large or small with respect to power distance?
Power Distance describes the relationship between leaders and followers in terms of dependence and interdependence. Hofstede, Hofstede, & Minkov (2010) define it as “the extent to which the less powerful members of institutions and organizations within a country expect and accept that power is distributed unequally” (p. 61). In large power distance cultures, organizations tend to be more hierarchical with centralized planning. Leaders are deferred to for decision-making and are expected to be a benevolent autocrat. In contrast, small power distance countries have flatter organizations with decentralized planning. Leaders consult with subordinates in decision-making and are expected to be democratic. In the sense of French and Raven’s (1959) sources of power, large power distance cultures’ sources of power are referent (or charisma) and coercion. Small power distance cultures’ sources of power are expertise, legitimate (or formal position), and reward (Hofstede et al., 2010, p. 77-8) (Rohm, 2014, p. 1).
