This paper elaborates on first quantitative results of an empirical study on participative leadership carried out among 158 middle managers from three sectors of industry in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The research builds up on a theoretical framework adapted from the GLOBE II research model, using the methodology and main instruments of the project. The main purpose of this paper is to explore the positions of Bosnian middle managers to what extent subordinates should be involved in the process of making and implementing decisions, as well as the impact of culture on the way managers perceive participation. Findings reveal that Bosnian middle managers are favourable towards participative leadership. Furthermore, significant impact of established cultural values and norms is recorded.
