- BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
The principal of school occupies a vital position in the school. He is an individual who has his own ways of carrying out his jobs.
He has his own way of perception communication, attitude to work, behavior and family background, personality and host of others which are not the same with the people that work with him or students in his/her school.
Human beings being what they are, as individual, so that leadership style of any secondary school principal will incidentally affect the performance of the students in the school both positively and negatively and it may result into high productivity or low productivity. As an extension of the home, the society is always very curious about what goes on in the school.
It is a fact one that major tasks of a principal in a school is to direct and control school activities in order to achieve the objectives of education in the country.
The extent of success of any leader depends on his subordinates’ willingness to co-operate with the leader. This eventually depends to a large extent on the degree of congruency between the principal’s leadership style and the subordinates’ expectations.
Lawler (1973) says “leadership style has an important influence on the organizations of effectiveness because it influences both intrinsic and extrinsic motivation as well as satisfaction, absenteeism and turnover”
Adamu (1998) also defined leadership “as influence, the art or process of influencing people so that they will strive willingly towards the achievement of group goals.
There is no doubt that it equally plays a crucial role in determining the kind of groups norms that will develop towards productivity.
The success or failure between productive in any organization is to a large extent or degree directly attributed to leadership style.
Many researchers try to find out what leadership style is the best because, it has not been resolved that a particular leadership style is universally accepted and when it is adopted in one school and things go on well, can the same system do well in another place. Also it has not been easy to agree on a particular leadership style because likeness of every individual tends to be different.0
