CEO Strategic Leadership, High-performance Work Systems, and Corporate Entrepreneurship
Corporate entrepreneurship plays a key role in enhancing organizations’ core competitiveness and sustainable development. To better understand the antecedents of corporate entrepreneurship, this study draws on the strategic leadership literature and upper echelon theory to explore the influences of CEO strategic leadership and high-performance work systems (HPWS) on corporate entrepreneurship and tests the moderating effects of the organizational life cycle on the relationship between these influences. Using matching data from 192 Chinese firms, the paper finds that both CEO task-focused leadership and relationship-focused leadership are positively related to HPWS and corporate entrepreneurship; a HPWS mediates the positive relationship between CEO strategic leadership and corporate entrepreneurship; and an organizational life cycle moderates the influence of CEO strategic leadership on a HPWS and the indirect effects of CEO strategic leadership on corporate entrepreneurship through a HPWS. This study integrates the CEO strategic leadership, strategic human resource management, and corporate entrepreneurship literature. It has important theoretical and practical implications."
