Abstract: This study was carried out to establish the influence of head teachers’ management styles on teachers’ counter productive work behaviour in Manafwa district public secondary schools. The study was guided by the following objectives: i) to establish the dominant management styles of the head teachers in public secondary schools in Manafwa district; ii) to investigate the extent of teachers’ counter productive work behavior in public Secondary Schools in Manafwa district; and iii) to find out the relationship between headteachers’ management styles and teachers’ counter productive work behaviour in public secondary Schools in Manafwa District. A sample of 466 was used. These included 166 teachers who were used as respondents to report about their headteachers’ management styles, while 300 students were used to report about their teachers’ counterproductive work behavior. They were got from the six public secondary schools in the district. Due to the desire to get detailed data, 48 teachers and 60 students were interviewed to dig deep into headteachers’ management styles and the counterproductive work behaviour of teachers. To prevent biased reporting, teachers reported about their headteachers’ management styles, while students were required to report about their teachers’ counterproductive work behaviour. The findings were that the dominantly used management style by the head teachers in public secondary schools in Manafwa district is laissez-faire; the extent to which teachers’ Counter Productive Work Behavior in public Secondary Schools in Manafwa district, exists is small; and the relationship between headteachers’ management styles and teachers’ Counter Productive Work behaviour in public secondary schools is not significant. It was recommended that there is need for head teachers to employ democratic style of management. Laissez fare style should be discarded; otherwise it implies lack of professional ethics among head teachers. Head teachers should cause teachers to behave and act responsibly, thus doing away with counterproductive work behavior. This can be done through regular staff meetings as well as supervising and monitoring teachers. Also, though there is no significant relationship between management styles of head teachers and the teachers counter-productive work behavior, there is need for head teachers to apply different methods of management especially democratic and dictatorial. This can cause teachers to behave responsibly as qualitative data revealed
