Abstract This study sought to explore ‘how’ leadership styles of the headmasters and headmistresses in the five selected schools affected the performance of teaching staff in senior high schools. The study found out ‘why’ certain leadership styles of the heads resulted in certain job performances on the part of the teachers. Both qualitative and quantitative research approaches were adopted for this study. The type of case study used was exploratory in nature. The instruments employed to collect data for the study were questionnaire and interview guide. The participants of this study were all headmasters and headmistresses as well as sampled teachers who teach in Senior High Schools in the Ejisu Municipality. Five heads from the five selected study schools in the Ejisu Municipality were chosen using the non-probability technique of purposive sampling. Also, in selecting 230 teachers for the survey questions, the study adopted the probability sampling method of simple random sampling. The results gathered were then subjected to statistical computations using frequencies, percentages and graphs. The study concluded that if the appropriate leadership styles and positive relationships are adopted by school heads, teachers are likely to cooperate and work hard to give optimum performance that will help achieve the goals of their schools. It was therefore recommended that Ghana Education Service conduct performance appraisal regularly for Senior High School heads and their teachers to provide a ready reference on the performance of each school.
