Shared Leadership Model: Do Secondary School Heads in Botswana Matter?

Luke Moloko Mphale


The purpose of the study was to investigate Botswana secondary school heads’ perceptions on shared leadership practices. The study used a survey design. Three research questions guided the study. Data were collected through an individual structured questionnaire which was validated. The reliability level was 0.7 using Cronbach Alpha Statistic. Systematic sampling was used to select the participants. The sample comprised fifty school heads from junior secondary schools and twelve school heads from senior secondary schools. Data were analysed using a computer package known as the Statistical Package for Social science (SPSS) version 22. The findings of the study showed that leadership is no longer a one man’s show but, a professional work of everyone in the school.  Based on the findings of the study it was recommended that for schools to be successful, they should practice a shared leadership model.
