Three Change Facilitator Styles: Some Indicators and a Proposed Framework.
Hall, Gene E.; And Others
This paper describes principals' behavior as they facilitate the implementation of an innovation in their schools. The paper uses data from research conducted by the Concerns-Based Adoption Model Project at the Austin campus of the University of Texas. The behaviors of nine principals are associated with three "change facilitator styles" named by the researchers Responder, Manager, and Initiator. The paper first reviews selected literature on the role of leaders, then describes the studies and experiences that have led to the development of the three styles. A framework is outlined that suggests some of the ways that these three change facilitator styles can be related to each other and to the overall picture of change facilitation at the school level. A discussion of research, practice, and training implications concludes the paper. (Author/MLF)
