    Abstract

    This study examined the dimensions of national identity, leadership, satisfaction with supervisor, workplace commitment amongst different nationalities. Data were collected from 213 participants from organizations in United Arab Emirates (UAE). The results showed that managers in the UAE were less transformational and more passive avoidant than managers in the US and Europe leading to lower satisfaction and effectiveness. The findings of this study add knowledge to business practices and trace implications for theory and future research in the Gulf countries.
