Abstract

The systematic study of workplace behavior in the Dominican Republic is in its infancy. Much has been studied about leadership in the political arena, but little about leadership at work. This article discusses the findings of a small-scale survey of five work organizations in the Dominican Republic regarding a series of organizational-behavior dimensions, such as managerial styles in decision making, followership types, power bases at work, delegation of authority and beliefs about authority at work. Data from this study show that some indicators of authoritarian behavior identified in the context of the country's political culture seem to be reflected in manager-subordinate relations at work. Implications for management development and training are discussed.
