Personal epistemological beliefs and transformational leadership behaviours
The recent emergence of epistemological beliefs as a basis for understanding what and how knowledge is used in the context of a teacher's professional practice has implications for the study of leadership behaviours. This paper contends that transformational leaders display many behaviours characteristic of constructivist teachers in terms of facilitating learning in subordinates by providing support and development opportunities. As a result, studying epistemological beliefs may provide insight into the behaviour of transformational leaders in organisational settings and contribute to leadership training and development.
