Profile

It has been widely evidenced that workplace leaders are a key driver of organizational innovation. Nonetheless, it is still complex to distinguish this association as there are a number of factors that can contribute to and affect this relationship. Leadership as a concept consists of multiple branches, such as styles, personalities, skills and abilities, processes and even relationships with others.

Scholars argue that managers, supervisors and other workplace leaders can be quite effective in fostering creativity and innovation amongst their subordinates if they portray certain behaviours.

In this research project, I am aiming to understand in depth a particular leadership style and its relationship with the creativity and innovation of the followers. By examining further potential contributors, I also try to identify what could explain this relationship, how followers react to a leader’s behaviours and how the best results could be produced. The question around the effectiveness of ambidextrous leaders is relatively new and a key question I will try to answer is how ambidextrous leaders facilitate the followers’ creativity and innovation.
