Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
Modern Russian society has a problem of lack of leadership potential, national labour market is oversupplied with managers, but suffers from deficit of authentic leaders. Recent economic studies and theories converge to the state that country’s leadership potential depends on the cultural and mental features, in particular. Provided thesis tries to find an answer to the question “whether there is a clean connection between Russian mentality and Russian leadership style” and if it is possible to overcome the deficit of leadership potential among the whole nation or not. In order to do this, I used analytical approach. I have structured and merged already performed researches and surveys with existing theories and facts from Russian and English sources. Through the qualitative methods, I founded couple of hypotheses based on a recently made paper. I understand that using only analytical approach to reveal this topic is not enough because of limitations of available resources, instruments and time. Therefore, this thesis can be used for the further research of Russian cultural features and its interconnection with leadership phenomena with using different kinds and scientific approaches.
