The qualitative phenomenological research study represents the personal and professional lived experiences of 16 former teachers of School District X in South Carolina. The focus of the study was to identify perceptions of how former K-12 teachers feel leadership behaviors of their principal affected their job satisfaction and decisions of attrition. The researcher conducted face to face interviews, then compiled the lived experiences of the sample participants and identified themes to discover the if leadership behaviors contribute to attrition. Eliciting, analyzing, and interpreting the lived experiences of the participants produced emerging themes, knowledge, and recommendations which can be used to improve retention efforts in schools. This information might enable leaders to understand and patiently use the leadership approach that is appropriate for meeting the needs of teachers employed in the district.
