Furthermore, individual motivation has a direct and significant positive effect on innovative work behavior (t = 3.847). Transformational leadership has an indirect and significant effect on innovative work behavior due to individual motivation (t = 3.775). Moreover, transformational leadership, considering the moderating role of knowledge sharing, has a significant positive effect on innovative work behavior (t = 7.703), and knowledge sharing reinforces innovative work behavior.
