INTRODUCTION

Background to the Study

Leadership styles in any organization including secondary schools are the management function and behavior which dictate the way forward to achieving the organizational or institution or institutional goals and objectives (Nwachukwu, 2001).

Expectation is great on the growth development and general well-being of secondary schools’ teachers and this is why the concern of people in all works of life about principals’ leadership styles is important because how secondary schools teachers are doing lies on the leadership styles of principals and when there is a creditable effectiveness of secondary schools, it will positively affect the growth and development of the society in the long run (Uche, 2004). The effectiveness in some secondary school teachers is attached to the leadership styles of their heads (principals) as it is argued that principals are the ones to show the way, to conduct, to guide, to direct, the course of others (staff and students) to stir the imagination of the people under them and lead them in achieving the set out objectives, therefore to a large extent their principals’ leadership style count.

Thousands of research work has been done on principals’ leadership styles and thus, the field is almost saturated. It was noticed that great importance is attached to principals’ leadership styles in teachers’ effectiveness.

The reason for this is not far-fetched; it is because the success or failure of an organization is tied to the caliber of those who steer the ship of leadership as well as their leadership styles.

Ebutta, (1995) stated that “the principals’ leadership style is at the core in a school system.” No school head can succeed as a good administrator unless she inspires her subordinates to work harmoniously with her, and their good will and active operation. When the principal makes teachers feel that they are significant in the system, teachers were able to give their full support to the achievement of the school objectives.

Williams and Harry styles are directed with organizational performance. According to Okoro, (1986) “the success of any school in meeting it stated goals principally depends on its chief administrator also known as the principal and his leadership style.
