|Lack of time||Embed knowledge-sharing into everyday processes and activities.|
|Lack of trust and no reward/motivation||Create an environment of trust. Implement reward and recognition programs.|
|Knowledge myth: “Knowledge is power.”||Recognize and reward those who share knowledge.|
|No knowledge of why, how, and what to do.||Leaders should clearly communicate knowledge objectives and goals through training, demonstrations, and webinars.|
|Lack of understanding of the importance of knowledge-sharing||Create a knowledge-sharing environment and emphasize its importance and benefits.|
|Habits of working individually||Regular success stories on how others are benefiting from knowledge-sharing.|
|Prioritizing other tasks over knowledge-sharing||First-level managers should model knowledge-sharing behaviours and attitudes for employees|
|Lack of leadership by example||Along with providing opportunities for knowledge sharing and building trust, senior stakeholders should lead by example. Anyone in a leadership position who evangelizes knowledge sharing will see better results if they practice what they preach.|
