Leadership is a comprehensive field of study that is significantly affected by cultural differences. In this study, the effects of cultural values on leading member interaction were examined. Leadership concept, leader member exchange, effects of cultural differences on leader member interaction and data on Turkish and French cultures are discussed. The point of the study is to test the effect of cultural differences and values on the leading member exchange. For this purpose, the sample comprising of Turkish and French employees is planned to be tested with the Leader ‐ Member Exchange 7 Questionnaire (LMX7) developed by Graen and Uhl-Bien, and the Cultural Dimensions and Values Survey Module (VSM 2008) developed by Hofstede.
