Abstract

This study investigates the impact of knowledge-oriented leadership (KOL) on the performance of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) under the Higher Education Commission. HEIs are pivotal for economic and educational advancement. Fostering Key Opinion Leaders (KOL) boosts motivation, engagement, and responsibility among knowledge workers. The research employs a positivist approach with quantitative methods and limited to a one-year cross-sectional time period to explore the relationship between KOLs and organizational effectiveness. Using Smart PLS-SEM 4 software, data from 640 participants were analyzed to assess the mediating effects of knowledge worker motivation, engagement, and responsibility. Findings indicate a strong positive correlation between KOL and organizational performance, influenced by the motivation, engagement, and accountability of knowledge workers. On the basis of findings and conclusion following recommendations were made. Prioritize knowledge-oriented leadership (KOL) to enhance HEI performance. Implement strategies to develop and support Key Opinion Leaders (KOL) within HEIs. Leverage theoretical and practical insights to guide leadership practices in HEIs.
