Abstract: The main purpose of the study was to develop a substantiated Principals Change Leadership Emotional Intelligence (PCLEI) model to identify critical PCLEI that maximises change effectiveness in Malaysian secondary schools. It adopted a survey method with 731 school principals as respondents. It was tested rigorously with Rasch analysis and structural equation modelling. The analysis yielded a four-factor PCLEI model namely, Emotional Perceiving and Expressing, Emotional Utilisation, Emotional Understanding and Emotional Regulation with normed chi-square = 1.613, TLI = .971, CFI = .978 and RMSEA = .046. This is a coherent premier tested model derived in a local education setting with good convergent validity, discriminant validity and composite reliability. It would benefit educational practitioners in planning, designing and evaluating future training programs for present and prospective school principals.
