Leadership and Culture
There are examples of individualistic and collectivist cultures found in every group or community. However, each nation is typified by one or the other types of cultures (Hofstede, 1980). In the early 1990s, the United Kingdom (UK) debated over accepting the Euro as its currency, eventually opting out of adopting it as the common currency in 1992. In June of 2016 a new vote was taken regarding the option to exit the European Union spearheaded by the Prime Minister and his political party.
