     The study sample consisted of 53 public school principals, and the descriptive analytical approach was adopted in data collection, analysis and interpretation.

The study also revealed an average level of cooperative work skills practice, with low levels of empowerment skills practice.

While there were statistically significant differences in the ability to adapt due to the gender variable for school principals. The results showed differences in the areas: the ability to withstand stress, control emotions, conflict resolution skills, communication and meeting management, attributed to the variable of administrative experience in favor of more experienced school principals.
