Abstract

Amidst China's education burden reduction policies and the digital technology wave triggered by COVID-19, extracurricular training companies are undergoing unprecedented transformations. Despite the crucial importance of leadership for the competitiveness of training institutions, its impact remains incompletely validated in the context of digital transformation. This study aims to explore the influence of leadership competence, digital capability, and social media adoption on the competitiveness of extracurricular training organizations in the digital era. Through literature review, establishment of a variable model, and quantitative analysis with 458 valid responses, data analysis was conducted using SPSS and SmartPLS software. The research findings provide valuable insights into how leadership competence, digital capability, and social media adoption impact the digital transformation competitiveness of extracurricular training institutions under restrictive conditions.
