Leaders and leadership are significant to the accomplishments or failures of any given organization (Northouse, 2015). This same situation is repeated in higher education institutions, where the influence of leadership is vital to academic and administrative success. Having an eager, decisive, positive institutional leader is essential to increasing and reassuring faculty performance as well as student learning. Developing leaders and leadership are key elements to enhancing the learning and teaching processes in higher education. Unqualified leaders, however, may lead a faculty to a state of decline in the level of the level of academic performance, especially teaching quality and research accomplishment. The process of leadership development has witnessed widespread desire and interest as of late, especially in the field of education.
