Abstract

The primary purpose of the planned study was to investigate professional educators in Northern Illinois to determine the relationship between manifestations of destructive leader behaviors (DLB) and K-12 workplace attitudes: subordinate likelihood of leaving, job satisfaction, levels of stress, and ability to perform work duties. The study demonstrated the presence of destructive leadership at all levels of educational leadership. Subordinate-directed behavior was perceived more than Organization-directed behavior and Sexual Harassment. Specific behaviors were found to be predictors of subordinate high job stress, low job satisfaction, high likelihood of leaving, and low perceived ability to perform work duties.
