This paper investigated the relationships between teachers’ perceptions of their school managers’ skills and their own self-efficacy levels. A total of 651 teachers working in Turkey participated in the current study. All the teachers filled in two questionnaires and subsequent quantitative data were analyzed through descriptive and inferential statistics. Findings indicated significant positive correlations between perceived teacher self-efficacy and teachers’ perceptions of their school managers’ skills. Also, perceived managerial skills significantly predicted perceived self-efficacy. Finally, perceived self-efficacy and perceived managerial skills changed significantly based on teacher characteristics such as experience and subject area. Findings highlight the need to develop holistic approaches to improve the quality, efficiency, and management of human resources in education.
