Abstract

The study aimed to investigate the role of leadership styles in promoting 21st century skills among secondary school students. The research was quantitative in nature and survey method was used to collect data using head teachers’ leadership styles questionnaire and a scale on 21st century skills i.e. collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication. Two stage Random sampling was used to select 200 students from 20 schools. Results based on t-test revealed that transformational leaders were significantly better for promoting 21st century skills i.e. communication, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration among the students as compared to transactional leaders. It was recommended that while hiring school leaders, the higher authorities may focus on transformational leaders as well as diversity of applicants according to the need of 21st century and for poor performing schools, higher authorities may continuously train school leaders on best leadership styles to boost performance.
