Destructive Leadership Behaviors and Workplace Attitudes in Schools
Woestman, Daniel S.; Wasonga, Teresa Akinyi
NASSP Bulletin, v99 n2 p147-163 Jun 2015
The study investigated destructive leadership behaviors (DLBs) and their influence on K-12 workplace attitudes (subordinate consideration for leaving their job, job satisfaction, and levels of stress). Quantitative survey method was used to gather data from experienced professional educators. Analyses of data show that the practice of DLB exists across all school leadership levels. Subordinate-directed behavior had the highest incidence of DLB, and principals and females experienced higher levels of DLB. DLB had negative correlation with job satisfaction, job stress, and consideration for leaving. Despite high levels of job satisfaction, respondents experienced feelings of stress and consideration for leaving their job.
