The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of distributive leadership behavior of foreign language schools' principals on the job satisfaction of instructors. Sample size of 416 instructors working in foreign language school for the academic year 2013 to 2014 was used in the study. The data was gathered using questionnaires tag "Leadership Practices Inventory" by Kouzes and Posner and "Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire." Median, Standard Deviation and linear regression were used to analyze the data. The result indicates that there is a significant effect of distributive leadership behaviours of principals on the job satisfaction of the instructors. Also, it is found that the dimension "enabling others to act" has greatly contributed to instructors' intirinsic job satisfaction whereas "enabling others to act" and "encouraging the heart" dimensions have a meaningful effect on the extrinsic job satisfaction of the instructors. In short, this new leadership idea will be beneficial for both the individuals and the structure of the organizations if understood and applied properly.
