Abstrakt EN: Through my article I have tried to establish a connection of Culture with Leadership. Culture awareness in a global context is not about exploring ones own but understanding its relevance and need i.e. individual’s capability to function effectively in situations characterized by cultural diversity. This includes situations that are diverse in national, ethnic and organizational cultures and in many other ways. It also includes diversity in gender, age, academic major, functional background, and interests to name a few. The study carried out with the students of University of west Bohemia (ZČU) having some knowledge of culture and its importance corroborated our main point of the paper. The students carried out an online assessment as part of their studies. They were assessed on 13 different sub-dimensions, “leadership” being one of them. The University of west Bohemia (ZČU) students scored the lowest on this sub-dimension of cultural intellince quotient. Also their scores wrern’t very high on socio-linguistic aspect either. It is pertinent to note that the the culturally intelligent people score high on these two two sub-dimensions. It is further elaborated that these two diemensions contribute a great deal in making a leader in their community to start with. And, that may help these people in becoming a successful business leader in future.
