This study aims at investigating the level of leadership skills availability among secondary school principals in Salfeet governorate from the point of view of teachers and principals. Moreover, this study aims at finding out whether there are statistical differences among the study sample according to the variables of (Workplace, Years of Service, and Age). The study sample consisted of 100 male and female teachers who formed 25% of the study population, and 30 principals with a 50% of the total number of principals. The researchers prepared two questionnaires: one for principals and the other for teachers. Both questionnaires were real and consistent with a 91% coefficient of stability for the questionnaire of principals, and 89% for the questionnaire of teachers.To examine the study hypothesis, the researchers used the analytical descriptive methodology and statistical package for the social sciences program (SPSS). The study revealed that Leadership skills availability among secondary school principals in Salfeet governorate was very high for all dimensions from the point of view of principals themselves but low from the teachers’ point of view except for the obstacles dimension, which was moderate. The study also found that there are no significant differences in the reponses of teachers and principals due to (Workplace, Years of Service, and Age) variables. In the light of the study results, the researchers recommend holding training courses to equip principals with modern leadership skills such as transactional, situational and transformational leadership, and organizing workshops for teachers to explain and understand the importance of leadership tasks and eliminate the obstacles that prevent school principals from possessing managerial and leadership skills.
