The present paper presents the GLOBE leadership behaviour of humane orientation as a moral construct within the ethical leadership theories of transformational leadership, servant leadership, and authentic leadership. A discussion of the country cultures of the United States, China, and Mexico and an articulation of how each of these theories is received and practiced in response to the leadership behaviour of humane orientation support the use of these theories in all three countries cultures. In particular, the use of these theories may be advantageous in increasing the use of humane-oriented behaviours in these country cultures, which supports an expressed humane orientation value in the United States, China, and Mexico.
