The aim of this study is to assess the relationship between teachers’ competencies, such as intellectual, emotional and spiritual quotients with teachers’ job performance. Based on the intensive review of the past and present literatures, the nature of the relationship between intellectual, emotional and spiritual quotients and teachers’ job performance was limited in numbers. This quantitative study implementing the cross-sectional approach to identify the factors that determine teachers’ job performance. The population in this study was teachers from National Secondary Schools (SMK) in the northern region of Peninsular Malaysia. The result from 324 data analysed revealed that intellectual, emotional and spiritual quotients have significant and positive relationships with teachers’ job performance. The model had explained 60.7 percent of teacher’s job performance (r2= 0.607). This study is essential to government and management of the schools to ensure teachers have assimilated these competencies through training and workshop for the achievement of the Malaysian Government Transformation Program (GTP). Future studies should look into how these competencies affect students’ performance and how they can be transferred to the students to ensure skilful and competent graduates in the future.
