Abstract: The study examined head teacher leadership techniques and teachers' motivation to work. The work is based on the premise that the leadership quality of the head teachers is related to teachers' motivation to work. Two research questions were raised to guide the study. Two research instruments ( Head Teachers' Leadership Techniques Scale and Classroom Teachers' Motivation Scale) were used for the study. The results revealed that all the 20 items in the Head Teachers' Leadership Techniques Scale have significant composite contributions to teacher motivation as 84% of the variance in teachers' motivation was explained by the Head Teachers' leadership techniques. Moreover, 12 out of the 20 items depicting Head Teachers' leadership techniques significantly explained the teachers' motivation to work. The study has implication to work. The study has implication for practising teachers and Head Teachers in primary schools.
