Management Styles. Educational Management Review Series Number 17.
Management style is a major factor in the successful accomplishment of the many tasks required of an educational administrator. An administrator's leadership style develops in proportion to his adaptation to organizational structure, his personality and value system, his concept of personal success, experiences both in and out of his managerial capacity, and the role expectations as perceived by others. The resulting style, in turn, greatly influences the school and its personnel. Research indicates that administrators must be subordinate-centered and that, given the problem-oriented nature of modern school organizations, they must be adaptive. Documents cited in this review examine in detail the determinants and influences of managerial style. The review concludes with specific recommendations of particular management styles. Sixteen of the documents surveyed are available from the ERIC Document Reproduction Service. (Author)
