This document posits an approach for leaders to gain advantage through knowledge facilitation within virtual work environments and presents a leadership model, the Knowledge Founded Virtual Self-Management Model (KFVSM). The model addresses the leadership of virtual teams as self-management founded and to operate within a soft systems structure. A proactive leadership structure incorporating environmental scanning founded on a dynamic fulcrum provides the superstructure of the model. The model was developed in reaction to increasing virtual work environments incorporating high levels of information technology within dynamic markets demanding quick change.The model operates from a knowledge facilitation platitude. Multiple contextual factors from the organization and follower perspective are incorporated. The model is meant to propagate organization paradigm shifts rather than just providing a method to react to them. Lastly, the KFVSM embraces leadership learning, change, and growth and views leadership as a skill to be developed over time and in reaction to change, knowledge, and need.
