Abstract

This research aims to examine the relationship between the influence tactics used by school principals and the organizational peace of teachers. The research was carried out with the relational survey model and the random sampling method was used. 307 teachers, who are working in high schools, participated the study. According to the results of normality tests, correlation and regression analyzes between variables were performed. According to teacher perceptions, it was concluded that school principals mostly used the tactics of complying with the rules and using personal intimacy the least. It has been determined that the teachers' perceptions of individual, relational and organizational peace are high, and the perceptions of disturbers are low. In the study, positive and negative significant relationships were found between organizational peace and the dimensions of influencing tactics. Influencing tactics explain approximately 52% of the variance in teachers' perceptions of organizational peace. The results obtained have revealed that organizational peace studies should be increased, while shedding light on new studies to be carried out in the context of organizational peace.
