This study investigates the relationship between leadership styles and knowledge management within organizations. The main objective is to identify the most appropriate leadership style that fosters effective knowledge management practices and encourages knowledge sharing among employees. To achieve this, a quantitative research approach was adopted, employing questionnaire surveys as the primary data collection method. The reliability of the research instrument was assessed using Cronbach's alpha. The study employed regression analysis to analyse the collected data and determine the influence of various leadership styles on knowledge management outcomes. By analysing the data, the study aimed to identify the leadership style that demonstrated the greatest positive impact on knowledge sharing within organizations. The findings of this research suggest that democratic leadership style is the most appropriate for knowledge management initiatives. The data indicated a significant positive correlation between democratic leadership and knowledge sharing, indicating that leaders who adopt a democratic approach facilitate an environment that encourages open communication, collaboration, and knowledge exchange. Based on the results, this study recommends that leaders embrace a democratic leadership style to enhance knowledge management practices. Organizations should prioritize creating an inclusive and participative culture that fosters employee engagement, empowerment, and involvement in decision-making processes.
