This chapter explores the relationship between leadership styles and turnover intention in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) public schools, in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi to be specific. The chapter particularly discusses the effect of a principals' transformational leadership and transactional leadership style on school faculty and staff intention to stay at the organizations. Further analysis will shed light on the relationship between leadership and turnover through logistical regression analysis. The chapter also highlights the current state of education in the UAE, leadership in public schools, and turnover intention in the public sector. Through this chapter, stakeholders, including principals, educators, public personnel, and policymakers, will better understand the implications of specific leadership styles in the GCC, particularly the UAE.
