Keywords:Overqualification, innovative work behaviour, entrepreneurial leadership, KP-Pakistan
The aim of this study is to unpack the bright side of overqualification. Based on social learning and human capital theories, this study is an attempt to explore the relationship between overqualification and innovative work behavior. Further, we investigate the role of
entrepreneurial leaders as a moderator in the relationship between overqualification and innovative work behavior. The study is based
on a dyadic source field study from employees and their supervisors. The empirical results reveal that overqualification has a positive
and significant association with innovative work behavior when the overqualified employees feel that their leader/supervisor has adopted an entrepreneurial leadership style. This is the first study that explores the relationship between overqualification and innovative behavior in the presence of entrepreneurial leadership. Additionally, the limitations, restrictions, and future directions are thoroughly covered.
