Leadership is one of the most important success factors of modern organizations since it plays a key role in shaping their culture. The characteristics of the leader and the ways in which he or she overpowers his or her team members have been the subject of research in recent decades for anthropologists, sociologists, psychologists and historians. Indeed, many researchers have argued that organisations such as schools, the culture and climate that prevail is shaped by the school's leadership team. The principal, teachers and students are the key members of the school. The school performance of students, the morale of teachers and the sense of security in the school unit is shaped by the atmosphere in the schools. At the same time, the role of the principal in shaping these elements of the school environment is usually emphasized because of the perceived direct influence of the principal on the atmosphere of the school. In this thesis we study and present the school climate and school culture as well as the contribution of leadership to the development of the modern school and the extent to which it can help to achieve the goals of the unit and the satisfaction of all its members. In this thesis, a quantitative research was conducted using a questionnaire to study and influence of leadership in modern schools. The survey was completed by 70 teachers from schools across the country. The results indicated that in schools where the management motivates, trusts its members and encourages initiative, performance was higher and school goals were achieved to the maximum extent.
