The study examines the relationship between strategic leadership, strategic performance, and core competence among teachers from Lebanon's educational sector. Using a sample size of 106 observations, with a convenient sampling method (quantitative), the results, which are attained using regression analysis, showed that core competence has a direct effect on strategic performance and strategic leadership. Conversely, strategic leadership has not shown its significant mediation role in effecting strategic performance through core competence. The examination of the data is performed using the mediation regression model. Other implications, limitations, and future works are further discussed.
