The purpose of this study was to examine the leadership practices of principals identified as servant leaders. The conceptual framework used to access the leadership behaviours was the leadership practices advocated by Kouzes and Posner. Statistical analysis included a multivariate test to determine if the demographic variables were significantly related to the overall self-assessed rating and a univariate analysis of variance (ANOVA) to determine which practices the servant leaders were utilising. The research findings revealed that no demographic variable was significantly related to the overall self-assessment of servant leadership rating. The findings also revealed that public school principals identified as servant leaders were rated significantly higher by their teachers in the five leadership areas highlighted by the "Leadership Practices Inventory". The implications for leadership preparatory programmes are significant. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
