Abstract

The purpose of the study was to evaluate the level to which School Principals in Oshana Region Namibia utilise the transformational leadership style in their daily school administration. The study used a quantitative research design through the use of a questionnaire which was administered to 40 school principals in selected schools in Oshana Namibian School Region. Findings of the study show that the school principals still lack most of the factors for transformational leadership. Another finding was that school principals are using the Lassez-faire type of leadership and management by exception. The study recommended that the school principals need to undergo continuous staff development on transformational leadership style for them to improve their administration strategies.
