Luke Moloko Moloko Mphale


The purpose of the study was to explore types of Leadership Capability Models used by managers of junior secondary schools in Botswana. The focus was to identify appropriate model(s) which can assist the school management to understand their potential in motivating teaching staff. The study was mainly quantitative and used questionnaires to collect data. Some official documents were used to supplement the information collected for the purpose of triangulation. Data were analysed using the Statistical Package for the Social Science or Statistical Product and Service Solutions (SPSS) version 19. The findings of the study revealed that there is no specific leadership model used by the senior management in schools. However, it was also revealed that whichever leadership model that could be used in schools, senior management ought to be confident, competent and self- managing in order to motivate staff effectively. The study, therefore, recommends that the school senior managers should be able to identify the intrinsic and extrinsic motivating factors in order to be good and effective motivators.
