ABSTRACT
This article explores the influence of Chinese philosophy on corporate leadership by deploying an inductive case study approach. It draws on the authors' qualitative field experience in Malaysian Chinese corporate leadership. The study specifically focuses on the deploying inductive case study approach to investigate the Malaysian Chinese corporate leadership with the first hand experience. It closely examines what is the reflection and how Chinese philosophy influences corporate leadership. This study is an exploratory effort that would be useful as a first step to guide a future larger research. In doing so, this study shows that the findings suggest that even though respondent did possessed knowledge and understanding of Chinese traditional philosophy in general, and influenced by it in the management of the organization, respondent was more comfortable and better informed about Buddhism and Confucianism than Taoist philosophy and Sun Zi Art of War. The discussion thus offers insight for the influence of Chinese philosophy on Chinese leadership based on the qualitative methodological design.
