This study investigated the constructs of Leadership Social Power (LSP) used by organizational leaders to influence Knowledge Management (KM) workers to bring about a successful KM implementation. Researchers have shown organizations wishing to secure, improve, or maintain KM success, should ensure their leaders: 1) are committed to KM, 2) encourage quality knowledge, and 3) promote knowledge use. The goals of this research focused on discovering how different factors of LSP impacted each of the three success factors. The current study was able to empirically demonstrate that LSP is a factor of that success and was able to predict Leadership Commitment to KM, Knowledge Content Quality, and Knowledge Use based upon predominate manner of Leadership Social Power used by the KM manager.
