This paper is an empirical study on the leadership behavior of the senior high school masters in Shandong Province using a modified from of the PM scale for leadership behavior assessment according to the characteristics of China’s educational system.

On the other hand, evaluations of teachers and the managerial staff indicate no significant difference in M leadership behavior factor. With regard to the values of working situation factors in schools, the teacher group and the managerial staff group indicate no significant difference in stimulation, satisfaction degree toward treatment and performance criteria, but indicate a distinctive difference in information communication. And, based on the present managerial situation of China’s senior high schools and the PM theory of leadership, some advice is presented on how to improve the management behavior of principals.
