Based on the findings, all the studied hypotheses were rejected, and the following conclusions were drawn: It is crucial for school heads to acquire life satisfaction as it is a key determinant of psychological resilience, which is a major attribute that must be possessed by people assuming leadership roles and school heads must feel satisfied with the quality of their work life for them to enhance their psychological resilience and their work performance.
