The majority of the research on the leadership’s effects on performance as it relates to employee performance and leadership styles conveyed a positive correlation but made mention of the fact that no study has confirmed the nature of this relation or why and how leadership styles influence

Leadership: Definition Leadership is the process of influencing the motive of the employees and so directing, guiding them to the proper completion of the short-term goals and the mission, vision of the firm. Leadership referring to achieve a specific set of goals of the business enterprise by minimizing risk and more advantage of opportunities is also called Entrepreneurial Leadership (Rao, 2015).

In this essay, I will firstly talk about IKEA Singapore’s ‘espoused values’, its heavy influence from its founder, 20th Century Swedish politics and Swedish culture, and then talk about how those espoused values and thus, Swedish culture are reflected on the store. To have a well-rounded answer when talking about IKEA’s espoused values, I cannot discount the influence of Swedish, thus I will talk about how Swedish culture is also reflected in the store as well, and at the same time, identify the various cultural artefacts. Next, I will argue on the reasons why IKEA focuses on Swedish culture. I will then talk about the prominence of local culture in IKEA Tampines, and the interaction between local culture and IKEA’s espoused values, and conclude

Our success is measured in the confidence we gain, the improved team morale they foster, the conversations we no longer struggle to initiate and the conflicts they are able to resolve.
