AbstractThe study emphasizes on the role of transformational leader in developing a culture of knowledge sharing in public sector hospitals. Transformational leaders may become the source of inspiration and serve as role models for organizational members to share their valuable knowledge with others. The leaders are unable to develop an organizational culture where there is trust among organizational members to share their valued knowledge with each other. However, it is needed to know that whether a cause and effect relationship exists among transformational leader and knowledge sharing. The implication of the present study is the result of the dangerous nature of the problem that confronts not only some hospitals, but whole health sector and indeed countries as a whole. The present study helps in developing a trust based organizational culture where employees feel free to share their worthwhile knowledge. By sharing knowledge, the performance of the hospitals can also be enhanced and patient care becomes easier.
