Abstract:

The objective of this study is to investigate the influence of leadership competencies, which include emotional, personal, organizational, and creative thinking dimensions, on the augmentation of social capital at the University of Baghdad. Social capital is represented by its three dimensions, namely structural, cognitive, and relational. To attain the research objectives, the theoretical variables were identified by defining the concepts and examining the scholarly works of experts in this particular area of study. The study utilized a questionnaire as the principal instrument for gathering data from a sample population consisting of administrative and academic leaders affiliated with the University of Baghdad. The approach was grounded in empirical methodology. A total of 80 questionnaires were disseminated to the participants, all of which were subsequently collected. A range of statistical techniques were employed to manage the data and evaluate hypotheses, such as the calculation of the mean, correlation coefficient, and regression line equation. The research utilized a descriptive-analytical methodology to examine both theoretical and empirical data pertaining to the variables under investigation. This approach involved describing the situation and subsequently comparing it with its analysis to derive conclusive findings. The study yielded multiple findings, with the most noteworthy being the identification of a correlation and a significant impact of leadership competencies on social capital at the University of Baghdad. The outcomes were uniformly positive. This statement suggests that the university places a significant emphasis on developing leadership skills, which has resulted in an increase in social capital. The primary suggestions entail augmenting the backing for leadership capability dimensions within the academic institution through the cultivation of a collaborative culture, the amplification of social relations, and the accentuation of its function in augmenting social capital. Furthermore, leveraging the strengths of the university in terms of leadership capabilities that evince a distinct impact on social capital is also recommended.
