Characteristics of Effective School Leaders and Their Administrative Context.
Richards, Janet C.; And Others
Findings from a study that examined effective administrators of schools for the visual and performing arts with respect to personality characteristics, leadership style, and administrative context are presented in this paper. Questionnaires mailed to 36 administrators of schools for the visual and performing arts in the United States and Canada were returned by 17 respondents. Findings indicate that the combination of artistic interest with democratic leadership styles creates a harmonious administrator/staff relationship. Administrators also possess skills crucial for fundraising and recruitment activities, which are unique to their schools. A conclusion is that administrators match personal with school needs. The appendix contains selected items (7), and the 57-item survey instrument. (26 references) (LMI)
