Malaysia and Indonesia emphasizes distributive leadership practices among school leaders by the year 2020. This is being done to improve the social and economic capital of the country through an effective school improvement, quality improvement of human capital, and the growth of state assets. However, the issues that arise such as education transformation and leadership complexity, indirectly lead to conflict that affects the school performance. This study was conducted to review the distributive leadership among teacher leaders in two different nations, Malaysia and Indonesia. Specifically, this study examined the distributive leadership practices among teacher leaders in secondary schools. Cross-sectional survey method was applied in the process of collecting data through Distributed Leadership Readiness Scale (DLRS) formed by Gordon, 2005. The findings showed that there were differences in distributive leadership practices in Malaysia and Indonesia. This study can be used by school leaders as a guide in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of the leadership aspects, as an addition to the basic reference to improve the range of knowledge, skills, and leadership management, as act of sharing the vision, values, duties and responsibilities of the organization in particular, as well as research in aspects of management in schools generally
