Analyzing the data obtained by the Global Leadership and Organizational Behavior Effectiveness Program (GLOBE), we reconsider the differences in leadership behaviors among managers in Taiwan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mainland China. To explain these differences, we propose a new perspective of institutional symbiosis. This new perspective helps understand how societal cultures and leadership behaviors evolve or change, which contributes the institutional theory as well as managerial literature as a whole. This paper concludes with a discussion on the implications of this new perspective to researchers and practitioners.
