Confucian Thought Affecting Leadership and Organizational Culture of Korean Higher Education
Lee, Jeong-Kyu
Online Submission
This article examines Confucian thought affecting leadership and organizational culture of Korean higher education in order to understand leadership behavior and ethical values in Korean higher education from a viewpoint of educational administration. The writer evaluates that most of educational administrators in Korean higher education prefer hierarchically authoritative leadership to reciprocally humanitarian leadership as well as preferring autocratic managers to moral managers. Also, he estimates that the major characteristics of organizational culture are a hierarchically closed system, an age-ranking system, paternalism, masculine dominant culture, and academic collectivism based on Confucian ethical values and principles.
