The model was developed to enhance leadership style and teaching strategies. This study was conducted by two objectives. The first objective was to determine the impact of leadership style on teachers’ teaching strategies of higher secondary mathematics teachers. The second objective was to compare the teachers teaching strategies before and after they attend the leadership style training program. Quantitative method was used for the study. The major theories were situational leadership and transactional leadership and the teaching strategies questionnaires were taken from the authors of Davies, 2004, Pisapia, 2009 and Johns, 2014.

Multiple regression analysis was utilized to find significant variables. A survey using the leadership styles questionnaire were distributed to a sample of one hundred fifty secondary mathematics teachers. The current leadership style and teaching strategies were found to be moderately practiced by the higher secondary mathematics teachers. A model of leadership style for higher secondary mathematics teachers’ teaching strategy was two parts: leadership style and teaching strategy. The new leadership model will hopefully be utilized by the higher secondary mathematics teachers, school leaders and the administrators.

It is believed that the model would substantially influence the way the higher secondary mathematic teachers’ currently practiced leadership. The administrators can adjust themselves in performing their leadership practices through a number of factors which include time constraints and workloads, cooperation, culture, and values, qualification, skills, and experience, organizational structure, funding and facilities, and tasks and roles related to leadership.
