This study investigates the relations among knowledge sharing, transformational leadership and personality traits.
An organizational perspective allows exploring the moderating effects of transformational leadership on both knowledge
sharing and personality traits. Based on a survey of 1,325 valid questionnaires, the empirical findings show knowledge sharing
is significantly and positively influenced by openness to experience, agreeableness, and conscientiousness. Knowledge sharing
is also significantly and positively influenced by transformational leadership, which increases knowledge sharing motivation
among extroversion and conscientiousness traits. High transformational leadership may reduce knowledge sharing reluctance
among individuals with neuroticism traits. To promote knowledge sharing effectively, teachers and manager ought to provide
students and employees with transformational leadership, depending on observed personality traits and variations.
