This study investigated the resonant leadership characteristics, work empowerment, job satisfaction and performance of the faculty members. It used the descriptive-correlational design to determine the relationships between the independent and dependent variables. The study also considered looking into the predictors and best fit model for faculty performance among 322 full time tertiary teachers of private schools in Region XI. The data were gathered through the use of survey questionnaires. The findings of the study indicated that the respondents rated all the four variables resonant leadership, work empowerment, job satisfaction, and faculty performance of the study, high. It was also found out that resonant leadership and work empowerment both had significant relationship with faculty performance but job satisfaction did not spell out a significant relationship. The hypothesized models of the study did not best fit the data since the criteria set for these were not met. A model showing the direct effect of resonant leadership on faculty performance was found to best fit the data as it met the criteria set for this. Specifically, the categories social awareness, relational management, and self-awareness strongly represent resonant leadership while professional knowledge, instructional delivery, and teaching personality strongly represent faculty performance.
