dc.description.abstractGlobally, universities have emerged as key innovation centers that play a crucial role in the convergence of science, technology, education, and economic development. Especially in China, universities play an essential role within the framework of the Chinese innovation ecosystem. As China's proposed policies attract a multitude of talents, a substantial number have chosen to return and make significant contributions to Chinese universities. The talented faculty members hired in Chinese universities play a pivotal role in sharing knowledge, serving as the foundational cornerstone for transforming knowledge into innovative elements. Nonetheless, Chinese universities encounter a noteworthy challenge: the reticence of talented faculty members to actively participate in knowledge sharing, which has wasted the chance of transforming knowledge into innovative drivers. Besides, this hesitance is particularly pronounced when talents with diverse backgrounds struggle to integrate into in-groups, leading to workplace exclusion. Accordingly, the exclusion constitutes a fundamental impediment to the unimpeded sharing of knowledge among faculty members. To stimulate knowledge sharing among talented faculty members in Chinese universities, this study, guided by the social classification theory and the institutional theory of leadership, explores the mechanisms involving authentic leadership, political skills, and cultural intelligence to reduce the perception of workplace exclusion and, consequently, promote knowledge-sharing activities. Furthermore, this study explores the mediating role of perceived workplace exclusion in order to clarify the connection between authentic leadership, political skills, cultural intelligence, and knowledge sharing. Due to the limitation of time and fund constraints, this study employs a self-administered questionnaire and a convenience sampling method. Survey data were collected from 387 full-time Chinese faculty members hired by universities who had overseas study or work experience. The data were analyzed using partial least squares structural equation modeling with WarpPLS 8.0. The findings highlight the substantial negative impact of perceived workplace exclusion on the willingness and effectiveness of knowledge sharing among faculty members. Furthermore, the results indicate that authentic leadership, political skills, and cultural intelligence (CQ) have a statistically significant negative impact on perceived workplace exclusion. the study validates that authentic leadership, political skills, and cultural intelligence (CQ) have direct and statistically significant positive effects on knowledge sharing. This study offers practical recommendations for universities, not only in China but also in other Asian countries facing similar challenges. These recommendations emphasize the development of authentic leadership traits, the incorporation of political skills training, and the integration of cultural intelligence into faculty development programs. These initiatives aim to address perceived workplace exclusion and, as a result, promote knowledge sharing among faculty members. By addressing this critical issue, the research contributes to the advancement of knowledge-driven innovation in Chinese universities, in alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 8, which emphasizes the significance of promoting decent work and economic growth.en
