The Cronbach Alpha statistic was used to determine the internal consistency of the instruments. These yielded 0.83 and 0.86 for MSPQ and TWPQ respectively. Five research assistants helped in data collection. Pearson product moment correlation was used to answer the seven research questions raised for the study while regression analysis was used to test the seven null hypotheses that guided the study at 0.05 level of significance. The findings showed among others that transformation and Managing-by-walking-around management styles of Principals significantly relate with teachers’ work performance in secondary schools to a very high extent while paternalistic and directive management styles of principals moderately relate with teachers’ work performance.
