In this study among 84 female school principals and 190 teachers, we tested the central process proposed by the Job Demands-Resources model of work engagement. We hypothesized that job resources have a positive impact on creativity and charismatic leadership behavior first through personal resources, and then through work engagement. School principals filled in a questionnaire via a secured website and indicated their levels of job resources, personal resources and work engagement, whereas teachers filled in a questionnaire about their school principal's creativity and charismatic leadership. Results supported the intervening effects of personal resources and work engagement in the job resources-creativity link. In addition, engaged school principals scored highest on charismatic leadership.
