Abstract

Leaders do not have the same attitude or the same perspective. It seems that there are many types of leadership that can be exhibited by leaders in the political, commercial or other fields. Leadership style is the way a leader provides direction, implements plans, and motivates people. When we look at the transactional leadership style, it primarily involves motivating and directing followers by appealing to their own interests. In addition, knowledge management is the process of capturing, developing, sharing and effectively using organizational knowledge. It refers to a multidisciplinary approach to achieve organizational goals by making the best use of knowledge. It is known that the leadership style has a direct impact on the organization’s tendency and form to meet the processes and steps of knowledge management. This study aims to examine the relationship between the operational leadership characteristics of health personnel working in a public hospital to knowledge management. Descriptive statistics technique was used to analyse the variables and investigate the hypotheses.
