Knowledge, wisdom and intellectual leadership: a question of the future and knowledge-based sustainability

International Journal of Learning and Intellectual Capital, Vol. 6, No.1/2 : 52 - 70

David Rooney, Bernard McKenna

Abstract: Important aspects of knowledge that are underresearched include links between knowledge, wisdom and leadership. This represents a research lacuna, which, if addressed, can help leaders develop knowledge-based strategies for future sustainability. Using a wisdom perspective enables the best, most strategic and ethical use of knowledge. By integrating knowledge and wisdom theory with strategic leadership theory, we define what wise intellectual leadership for a sustainable, knowledge-based future is. More specifically, we argue that strategic leaders should provide intellectual leadership for a sustainable future as an explicit part of a knowledge management strategy.
