The study will contribute to the field of e-leadership. The model presented in this study will be helpful for managers to adopt e-leadership as a form of interaction to impact on their environment. It will also help managers decide which factor is more interactive. There was a lack of similar past research regarding this topic making it difficult to compare and refer results with other past studies, especially in Malaysia. Secondly, the small number of respondents for this research may result in sampling errors, as it may not represent the whole population at the high education sectors. The scope was limited to managers only in Malaysian companies. The significance of this examination lies in the degree of usage of the effect of embracing e-leadership in enhancing managers’ execution and how it very well may be motivated to do as such. Besides, the result of the investigation will demonstrate the significance of e-leadership for directors in their workplace.
