For data analysis the Pearson correlation coefficient and structural equation modeling were used by SPSS and Lisrel software. Based on results the the amount of correlation coefficient of manager’s narcissism and teachers' organizational hypocrisy (r=0.407, p < 0.001), manager’s narcissism and teachers' organizational silence (r=0.398, p < 0.001), organizational hypocrisy with teachers' organizational silence (r=0.331, p < 0.01) was positive and significant. The direct effect of manager’s narcissis on organizational silence (β=0.36, t=4.54), the direct effect of manager’s narcissism on teachers' organizational hypocrisy (β=0.45, t=6.59) and the direct effect organizational hypocrisy on teachers' organizational silence (β=0.2, t=2.54) was significant. The indirect effect of manager’s narcissism and teachers' organizational silence was also significant with the mediator role of organizational hypocrisy (β=0.09). Thus can conclude that manager’s narcissism either directly or indirectly, through the mediating variable of organizational hypocrisy has a positive and significant relationship with the teachers' organizational silence.
