Implicit Leadership Theories in the Context of Frontex Joint Operations
Nunes, Marco Paulo Pereira
To this miscellaneous environment, we can add the different leadership prototypes and perceptions that border guards have regarding leadership. Here, is where it is possible to find the implicit leadership theories (ILTs) and thus, as cross-cultural researchers and international managers concur, we have a diversity of management systems that exist across contemporary Europe. The aim of this research was to get insight of implicit leadership theories in the context of Frontex Joint Operations (integration of the various Law Enforcement Agencies and/or Military Forces into one unified command, usually under the command of the hosting Member State). To reach this aim, a cross-sectional (survey) research design was adopted.
