This study aimed to develop a structural model of social Intelligence, creative behavior, decision making styles on school administrators’ productivity. The study revealed that the public school administrators were generally of a moderate level of social intelligence specially in terms of social skills and social awareness. They also manifested high creative behavior in terms of authenticity, fluency, flexibility, sensitivity to problems and risk acceptance. School administrators in Northern Mindanao frequently used rational, intuitive, spontaneous and dependent decision making styles. Rarely did they use avoidant decision making style. School administrators were generally highly productive in terms of human resource and management, school management and operations, parents’ involvement and community partnership, instructional leadership, and learning environment. There was a significant relationship between creative behavior, decision making styles and school administrators’ productivity. The best predictors to school administrators’ productivity were creative behavior in terms of flexibility and sensitivity to problems and decision making styles in terms of rational, intuitive, spontaneous and dependent decision making styles. Creative behavior and decision making styles with equal direct effect on school administrators’ productivity were found to be the factors that explain the best fit model. Creative behavior in terms of flexibility, authenticity, fluency and risk acceptance and the use of intuitive, spontaneous and dependent decision making styles were the variables reflected in the model. Moreover, the study noted an interrelationship between creative behavior and decision making styles. Thus, the findings suggest that school administrator’s productivity is best anchored on the kind of decision making styles they practice and their creative behavior.
