In 2018 the Transcultural Leadership Summit focused on transcultural leadership and cooperation in and with Brazil. The keynotes, workshops and discussions at the Summit gave rise to ideas on how to take the presented thoughts further within the context of transcultural research. The theory of Relational Leadership interprets leadership not in terms of an individual’s position, personal traits or charisma but as the result of a social exchange process between the leader and the follower within an organisational and institutional context. Relational Leadership puts cooperation, particularly the motivational and structural determinants and success factors of cooperation, at the center of its analysis. Within this perspective, individual and organisational resources that shape the dynamic and continuous processes of social interaction and learning are prerequisite and result of cooperation at the same time.
