The sample size is 3.048 respondents from a total of 4.150 employees. The findings are 22 hypotheses explaining leadership significantly: 16 independent variables determine positively and show a mutual impact as well as an accumulative direct influence to and from leadership. Only one variable shows a positive impact on leadership without any impact back. Five variables show a negative and non-accumulative effect towards leadership. Determinants show to have a positive, mutual and accumulative direct impact towards leadership. These determinants are: conduct to change, communication, working with leadership, networking, developing human resources, influence, working in groups, managing differences, using local language, commitment, discipline, non-reward based working, optimism, mutual caring, and consistency.
