The organization's most difficult task these days is retaining the best breeds. Especially in the education sector, where expert teachers are a valuable asset, losing a teacher is equivalent to losing an entire class. Researchers share a common understanding of the significance of employee retention. The turnover intention has a significant impact on organizational performance. The current study looks into the role of principal servant leadership in predicting employee psychological capital and reducing teacher turnover intention. This study investigated the key characteristics of servant leadership style in a sample of 374 teachers working in private sector schools using the Smart-PLS technique to test the proposed hypotheses. The authors developed and tested a complex model proposing that principals' servant leadership style increases teachers' psychological capital, which in turn affects teachers' intention to leave. The findings revealed that servant leadership has a positive impact on teachers' psychological capital while having a negative impact on their intention to leave. The moderated mediation model produced statistically significant results. There was also a discussion of theoretical and practical implementations.
Key words: servant leadership, employee psychological capital, practical implementations
