How CEO transformational leadership affects business model innovation: a serial moderated mediation model – ProQuest

Title

Professional Interest

Explain how this topic relates to your specialization interests.

As a student specializing in industrial-organizational psychology, my professional interest lies in understanding the dynamics of leadership within organizations and how it influences overall performance and innovation. The topic of how CEO transformational leadership affects business model innovation (BMI) is particularly relevant to my specialization. I chose this topic because leadership at the highest level significantly impacts an organization's strategic direction, culture, and ability to innovate. By exploring the serial mediating role of the top management team (TMT) collective energy and behavioral integration, and the moderating role of TMT-CEO value congruence, I aim to uncover the mechanisms through which effective leadership can drive innovation (Zheng et al., 2024) .

From my experience working in both small and large organizations, I have observed that smaller companies often exhibit a stronger organizational culture and alignment with their core values. This is largely due to the presence and active involvement of top leadership. In contrast, larger organizations may struggle with maintaining the same level of cultural cohesion. Therefore, understanding the influence of CEO transformational leadership on BMI can provide valuable insights into fostering innovation and aligning the company's actions with its mission and values, regardless of its size. This research will contribute to my professional growth by enhancing my ability to analyze and implement effective leadership strategies within diverse organizational contexts.
