This research investigated the correlation between leadership behavior and its impact upon, supervisors, coworkers, and organizational leaders in generating knowledge usage. A quantitative approach was utilized and correlational statistical analyses were performed to examine the relationships among the variables of interest. The sample frame was the population of local, state, and federal government workers within the United States. Data was collected using an existing validated survey instrument. The instrument was managed by the research service company SurveyMonkey and yielded 413 completed surveys. The Pearson correlation was selected to analyze the survey data. Other demographic and background information collected was analyzed using descriptive statistics. This study confirmed that leader behaviors and actions are critical in eliciting knowledge within an organization.
