In the school context, the present study concentrated on the effect of faultline on team leadership and personal initiative behaviors, which are beneficial to the school outcomes. Path analysis was adopted to analyze the causal relationship between faultline, team leadership, and personal initiative. The result revealed that, mediated by the discrepancy of perception of personal Guanxi (relationship) between members, faultline positively leads to the high team leadership and personal initiative. The explanation based on social identity theory was concluded in the study. Copyright © 2017 All Academic, Inc.
