The purpose of the study was to investigate the mediating role of knowledge sharing on the relationship between distributed leadership and readiness for change among public school teachers. The study was designed as a correlational study with one mediator. The sample of the study was composed of 556 teachers working at primary, secondary, and high level public schools in Edirne. For data collection, Distributed Leadership Scale, Readiness for Change Scale, Knowledge Sharing Scale, and Demographic Information Form were used. Descriptive and inferential statistical analyses were utilized by SPSS IBM 23 program. Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was performed to maintain measurement model fit by Analysis of Moment Structures (AMOS) 18 software. Mediation Analysis with Structural Equation Modeling (SEM) was conducted to test the hypothesized model. The results of the study revealed that knowledge sharing partially mediates the relationship between distributed leadership and readiness for change. Keywords: knowledge sharing, leadership, distributed leadership, organizational change, readiness for change.
