possibility of coaching by the Principal from a secondary school in Sabah to influence
the teaching and learning process of English language for teachers apart from to identify
the elements leaders would need to increase knowledge by facilitating the exploration
of needs, motivations, and skills to assist English language teachers in making evident
changes, and identify the influences of leadership-based coaching for constant proactive
learning-teaching process on the English language teachers’ practices. This research is
based on mixed-method approach obtained from semi structured interview, open-ended
questions and survey questionnaire. The population were mainly at secondary school

and determine the coaching adopted by Principal able to influence English teachers
teaching practices. The research suggested that not only the English teaching practices
of the teachers in the school organization exceedingly improve, it also gave variety to
English teaching techniques and most importantly the English teachers’ professional
development was enhanced under the school Principal’s coaching. Hopefully, that this
