Team knowledge sharing, as an important part of team knowledge management, plays a key role in team knowledge innovation. Inclusive leadership is a kind of relational leadership style, which has a positive impact on team knowledge sharing. Based on the theory of social identity, this paper examines the influence of inclusive leadership on team knowledge sharing. In addition, it also studies the mediating mechanism of team employees'recognition of team and leadership. This paper uses the method of questionnaire to make quantitative analysis, and the results need to be further explored.
