How Story was Stolen from Charismatic Leadership In the beginning there was Max Weber's story of charismatic leaders, heroes that transformed and changed the world, until they were ousted or succeeded by bureaucratic or traditional authority. Sir MacGregor Burns studied Weber and reasoned that transactional leaders were like the bureaucrats, and charismatic heroic leaders were the transformation leaders. Burns set sail from the Isle of Behavior, already having sailed to the Isle of Traits, and had heard of the Isle of Situation but did not go there.

As stated above question 2. There is no specific deadline for making a notification under the Swedish merger control legislation. The legislation simply stipulates that a proposed concentration which meets the notification thresholds must be notified and cleared prior to implementation.
Clearance is required if the turnover thresholds are met. There is no exception for transactions which, for example, do not involve any product market overlaps.
In such a scenario, a notification must be submitted to the European Commission unless the undertakings concerned have made use of their right to have the case reviewed at a national level in accordance with mechanisms set out for a downward referral under the EUMR.
In addition, under the EUMR, the Competition Authority may refer a potential concentration for review by the European Commission where Swedish turnover thresholds are fulfilled, but where there is no Community Dimension it is an open question as to whether such an upward referral can be made for concentrations which do not meet the Swedish thresholds.
Are there any formal sanctions?
As stated above question 3. To ensure the effectiveness of the stand-still rule, the Competition Authority has the ability to issue an order to the parties to a potential transaction not to proceed with implementation until clearance, and to make such an order subject to fines.
The wording of the previous merger control legislation suggested that this possibility existed only from the date of the notification, meaning that implementation prior to notification would not have infringed the suspension rule.
The current wording, however, makes it clear that a suspension obligation also exists before a notification is made. The merger control legislation does not formally provide for the possibility to carve out Sweden and close the remainder of a global transaction.
However, the Swedish automatic suspension rule which does not carry any automatic sanctions if violated only applies to Phase I reviews. Thereafter, a suspension may only be imposed by the Patent and Market Court or the Patent and Market Court for Appeals, as the case may be, and only provided that a suspension is motivated by a public interest that is stronger than the inconvenience caused by such a measure.
In view of this, it should be possible to obtain permission from the Competition Authority to proceed with closing outside Sweden if those parts of the concentration do not bring about structural changes that have an effect or are liable to have an effect on competition in Sweden.
Moreover, in such a case, it would be difficult to see how the public interest could justify the suspension of the entire transaction and not just the Swedish part of it.
As is the case under the EUMR, a notification can be made prior to the conclusion of an agreement constituting a concentration, provided that it can be demonstrated that the parties concerned have a good faith intention to enter into an agreement.
Similarly, a notification of a public bid can be made as soon as the intention to make such a bid has been publicly announced rather than having to wait until the formal public bid is launched. As a result, the notification of an acquisition in the form of a public bid would thus normally be possible when the bidder has issued a press release pursuant to applicable takeover rules which require that the broad terms and conditions for the bid are set out.
What are the main stages in the regulatory process? Can the timeframe be suspended by the authority? The initial Phase I review lasts up to 25 working days from the date of receipt of a complete notification. This period is increased to 35 working days when an undertaking offers commitments during the first 25 working days.
There is no evidentiary threshold which the Competition Authority must meet to proceed into Phase II, in contrast to the EUMR where it is stipulated that the Commission may only commence a Phase II investigation if the notified transaction raises serous substantive issues. In Phase II, the Competition Authority has three months at its disposal to decide either to clear the transaction or to file a summons with the Patent and Market Court to block the notified transaction.
Therefore, in essence, the procedure at the level of the Competition Authority may last approximately one to four months, at the most. There is also the possibility to stop the clock in Phase I on request from the notifying party.
By doing this, the parties could thus avoid going into Phase II. In addition, the Patent and Market Court may extend the three-month period in Phase II one month at a time upon a request from the Competition Authority, provided that the notifying parties agree to an extension or if they do not agree that there are compelling reasons for doing so.
Previously, the Competition Authority has only requested and obtained extensions with the consent of the notifying parties. If an appeal is made against the Patent and Market Court finding, the Patent and Market Court of Appeals must issue a final ruling within three months of the last day of appeal though this time limit may also be extended one month at a time.
Hence, the review process may be a protracted exercise. However, no measure may be taken against a concentration, whether notified or not, after two years from the date that the concentration occurred. What are the risks in completing before clearance is received?
The merger control legislation stipulates that the parties may not take any steps to complete a notified concentration prior to clearance. In Phase I, the Competition Authority may take a decision prohibiting the parties from completing the transaction before clearance is received.The "like me" syndrome can also influence an employer's assessment on the norms of performance.
Thus, there may be the perception that someone "different" is less able to do the job and that someone "like me" is more able to do the job. How do cultural differences impact the following influence tactics: (a) silent authority and (b) upward appeal?
Cultural differences play an important role in determining the influencing tactics used by the people in the organization and to analyze these differences one needs to understand what the cultural differences are.
The most widely studied influence tactics are silent authority, assertiveness, information control, coalition formation, upward appeal, impression management, persuasion, and exchange. “Soft” influence tactics such as friendly persuasion and subtle ingratiation are more acceptable than “hard” tactics such as upward appeal and assertiveness.
