Leadership influence refers to the ability with which the individual leader can influence others and promote others to realize his or her aim. According to the theory of leader effectiveness, leaders’personal characteristics, behaviors and other factors can directly influence leader effectiveness. Leader influence is a part of leader effectiveness. Studies on leader effectiveness and influence abroad emphasize leaders’power. while influenced by traditional culture, the researcher thinks that Chinese leaders’non-power influence can promote leader influence to a greater extent. In recent years the study on organizational citizenship behavior is a hot issue in the field of western psychology and management. Researches show that there is an obvious relationship between leader effectiveness and organizational citizenship behavior. Based on the review of the studies at home and abroad, this thesis measures the leader influence in school from empirical perspective, and explores the relationship between leader influence in school and teacher’s organizational citizenship behavior.
