Abstract: The purpose of the study was to explore the relationship of the distributed leadership style of headteachers with self-efficacy, commitment, and motivation of teachers in Government secondary schools of Punjab. The team leadership, support leadership, supervision leadership, and participative decision-making styles of heads were studied in this research. The sequential explanatory mixed methods design was used in this study. Firstly, quantitative data and then qualitative data were collected. A questionnaire was used to explore distributed leadership styles of heads and self-efficacy, commitment, and motivation level of teachers. The questionnaire was developed with the help of four instruments (distributed inventory, scales of self-efficacy and commitment, and a questionnaire for motivation). These four instruments were adapted in this research. Five hundred and thirty-eight male teachers were selected from Government boys' secondary schools from four districts (Mandi Baha-Ud-Din, Sheikhupura, Gujranwala, and Lahore) of Punjab through a multi-stage proportionate sampling technique. The interview protocol was developed to collect qualitative data from headteachers of the selected schools for a deep understanding of the situation. Both the questionnaire and interview protocol were validated by the experts and pilot tested. The Cronbach's Alpha overall value for the reliability of the questionnaire was 0.93. The data was analyzed using descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential statistical techniques (Pearson correlation coefficient, One way ANOVA, Post hoc test, and linear regression). Qualitative data were analyzed through thematic analysis. Themes and subthemes were developed and data were transcribed. Some of the quantitative data were confirmed by qualitative data. Findings of the study displayed that heads were using team leadership iii and participative leadership largely; the supportive and supervision leadership styles were also used in schools. Mostly the teachers have a high level of self-efficacy and commitment and the teachers who were newly inducted had a high level of motivation than the experienced teachers. There was a moderate relationship among distributed leadership styles of head, self-efficacy, and commitment of secondary school teachers and a positive high relationship between distributed leadership styles and motivation of secondary school teachers. The teachers with Ph.D. qualifications perceived that mostly team leadership style was used and had a high relation with self-efficacy, commitment, and motivation of teachers. The senior teachers would be motivated and encouraged through seminars or workshops along with monetary benefits. KEYWORDS: Distributed Leadership; Self-Efficacy; Commitment; Motivation
