The present study is concerned with
the managerial creativity, self confidence, leadership effectiveness and job
satisfaction of secondary school headmasters. Further, only few studies have
explored managerial creativity, self confidence, leadership effectiveness &
job satisfaction of school headmasters with reference to gender and length of
service in foreign and Indian conditions. It seemed more appropriate with
reference to our state. No such study has been conducted in the state of Jammu
& Kashmir on these selected variables. In India it is a developing area
particularly in context of educational administration. Hence the researcher
thought there is great need to probe into managerial creativity, self
confidence, leadership effectiveness and job satisfaction of headmasters in
relation to selected important variables. This aspect present study may prove
beneficial to educational planners and administrators to organize workshops for
secondary school headmasters and principals for reducing their decisional
stress and enhancing their self confidence and leadership by suitable
interventional Strategies. Also, by regarding creativity- their advantages and
shortcomings, may be inspired to modify the maladaptive styles and to switch on
to desirable one such as choice or vigilant styles.        

       The Headmaster is the foremost part of
any educational enterprise.  Depending
upon his ability and skill, personality and professional competence, echoes the
tone and efficiency of the school. Schools rise to fame or sink to obscurity as
greater or lesser Headmasters have charge of them. Everything in the school,
the plant, the staff, the curriculum, methods and techniques of teaching,
co-curricular activities, human relationships bear the impress of the
personality of the Headmaster. The Headmaster is the Keystone in the arch of
School administration. He is the hub of the educational effort. The Headmaster
is a group leader who knows how to involve people, how to arrange conditions
and initiate processes that will bring out the best in each participant. The Headmaster
is the Group Leader to direct and stimulate group effort. In the School
Management, the Headmaster occupies a unique position. He is in the strategic

     The
investigator while scanning the literature found that hardly any study has been
conducted on managerial creativity, self confidence, leadership effectiveness
and job satisfaction of school headmasters with special reference to gender and
length of service. The investigator found that the entire field is unexplored
and after making an in depth study of different surveys, journal and other
research inputs, it was found that there is a gap in the area of  managerial creativity, self confidence,
leadership effectiveness and job satisfaction 
in the context of school administrators. It is in this backdrop, it was
realized that a detailed investigation on this aspect seems to be relevant and
need of the hour. In a trend report on Educational Administration and
Management of Education, Rao and Sridhar (1997) emphasized that “there is an urgent need to undertake a
series of investigations on, leadership and management”. In the light of
this research gap, it was realized that the present study has a much broader
scope and authenticates the need to carry out a detailed study.
