Your Leadership Style: A Management Development Module for Educational Leaders.
Management processes of planning, organizing, directing, and motivating are vital to schools and industries alike. Accordingly, this module, the first in a series of two, has been developed as a training guide using the Hersey-Blanchard approach to leadership styles. It can help build principal-faculty relationships, superintendent-governing board relationships, and teacher-student relationships. The first section, "What you need to know," provides a literature review of leader behavior theory, explaining basic concepts such as influence, task behavior, and relationship behavior. It then provides an indepth explanation of the Hersey-Blanchard Situational Leadership Model, showing the relationships between task-relevant maturity of a group and leadership styles. The second section provides a series of learning activities and handouts based on this model. These include (1) a scoring and interpretation workbook, (2) five case studies for assessment of task-relevant maturity of groups, and (3) a set of leadership style role-playing kits, illustrating various styles of leadership and patterns of accommodation. A list of resource materials is included, along with sample training designs, references, and a short bibliography. (TE)
