This study sought to examine the role of agreeableness trait and communal organisational culture in knowledge sharing. It used the survey research technique as the research design. The convenient sampling technique was used to select 234 respondents. Questionnaire was used as the data collection instrument. Data were analysed using multiple linear regression. The results indicate that both agreeableness trait and communal organisational culture significantly predict knowledge sharing, however, communal organisational culture predicts knowledge sharing more than agreeableness trait. Recommendations have been provided at the end of the study.
