This study was conducted in order to determine the effect of the third party roles which are used for the solutions of conflicts by the principles of the primary schools on the performance of the teachers. Data collected from 47 principals and 256 teachers working in 15 primary schools in the district of Gebze, Kocaeli were used in this study. The findings of the research depict that while the school principals mostly hold the roles of mediator and facilitator, they are likely to avoid the roles of reconciler by force and laissez-faire (negligent). Role of the reconstructionist is also partly used by the principals.
