Abstract


With the development of social politics, economy and culture, great changes have taken place in China's cultural tradition, social system, market economy, education and information dissemination. Subsequently, it has led to a decrease in the power distance of Chinese society. However, there is no corresponding change in the leadership behavior of the enterprise, so the inconsistency of power understanding leads to an increase in the turnover rate of the core employees in the enterprise. In view of this, in order to cope with changes in the decrease of power distance, the leadership style should be changed from the autocratic leadership to the transformational leadership under the guidance of the contingency theory.
