Keywords:leadership, personality, performance, school heads
Nusche and Moorman (2008) postulated that school leadership is now an education
policy priority around the world. Concerns such as clear cut guidelines or standard
framework for performance, qualifications and preparations are consideration that
needs to be rationalized and institutionalized. Anchored on Fiedler’s Contingency
theory, the study critically analyzed the association of leadership style and
personality types to the performance of 41 basic education school heads of SDANLM in the Philippines in an attempt to improve educational outcomes. Descriptive correlational method was used aided with three sets of questionnaires in leadership, personality and performance. Data on leadership and personality correlated to the performance\ of school heads. Participative leadership
style manifested. Personality types fall under extroverted, sensing, thinking and judging (ESTJ). Autocratic leadership style correlates to school heads performance. Personality type of thinking and feeling correlates to performance. Leadership correlates to school heads performance. Autocratic style, sensing and judging for personality type serves as the predictive model for high performance. Premised on the result, the Performance Development Framework was offered to accomplish the needed leadership growth. Differences on leadership style and personality types on selected variables can be considered for further inquiry. Spiral model of leadership emerged as a result of the study.
