Anar Purvee and Dalantai Enkhtuvshin
Abstract— Previous studies focus more on organizational ambidexterity topic and less on managers’ ambidexterity topic. In the past 15 years, many potential antecedents of organizational ambidexterity have been found; however, very few of them found for managers’ ambidexterity. This paper contributes to this gap, and studied the relationship between transformational leadership and managers’ ambidexterity, and the mediating role of environmental dynamism. A survey was conducted among Mongolian companies and the final sample was 608 managers. The research findings suggest that transformational leadership is positively influences on managers’ ambidexterity and this influence is stronger in a dynamic environment.

Index Terms— Environmental dynamism, managers’ ambidexterity, transformational leadership
