— Previous studies analyzed the relationship between leadership and organizational innovation in different contexts; however very few of them studied the influence of different leadership behaviors on managers’ ambidexterity. This study investigated the effects of transformational and transactional leadership behaviors on managers’ ambidexterity, and mediating role of trustworthiness. The research findings suggest that transformational leadership behavior has more positive effect on managers’ ambidexterity than that of transactional leadership; and this impact is stronger when trustworthiness is higher.
— Transformational leadership, transactional leadership, trustworthiness, managers’ ambidexterity.
