|Title:||How do leadership styles influence the success of knowledge management initiatives? an investigation of leadership styles on knowledge workers in a call centre.||Authors:||Khoo, Adrian Lay Kuan.||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences||Issue Date:||2006||Abstract:||This paper investigates the leadership styles of team managers of knowledge workers. Based on interviews with employees of a local bank, this qualitative study contributes to a better understanding of leadership styles in the field of knowledge management. The findings show that a discernible variety of leadership styles are employed by respondents, most commonly a people-centred style of leadership. However, regardless of the various leadership styles'observed, a central theme of trust emerges, acting as a common premise in the management of knowledge workers. This opens a new insight into our current understanding of leadership theory, and its applicability to the role of knowledge management.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10356/20816||Rights:||Nanyang Technological University||Fulltext Permission:||restricted||Fulltext Availability:||With Fulltext|
