Today, knowledge is an invaluable organizational key resource, whose effective sharing is fundamental to the attainment of the organisational goals. This study investigated organisational culture and knowledge sharing attitudes among academic staff in public colleges of education, Lagos State, Nigeria. The study is guided by four null hypotheses, using the descriptive research design. A self-constructed, validated, and reliable instrument (r=.85) was used for data collection. Stratified disproportionate random sampling technique was used to select two institutions and 300 participants. One-Sample t-test and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation were used to test all the hypotheses at .05 significant level. Findings showed that knowledge sharing attitudes among academic staff was poor [t (299) = 212.05, p≤.05]. Also, knowledge sharing was positively, moderately and significantly related with leadership (r (298) =.428; p≤0.05) and social networking (r (298) =.531; p≤0.05). Finally, there was a positive and strong significant relationship between collegial collaborations and knowledge sharing attitudes (r (298) =.711; p≤0.05). An organization’s ability to share knowledge among staff members is vital to its competitive advantage. It is therefore recommended among other things that institutional authorities should formulate policies that will ensure free flow of knowledge, and also encourage effective collegial collaborations among academic staff.
