Educational leadership is designed as that behavior among individuals or groups which causes both the individuals and the groups to move toward educational goals that are increasingly mutually acceptable to them. Democratic leadership is situation and goal centered and is a function of the interaction of persons whose uniqueness is respected and whose contributions are nurtured. This book gives much attention to emerging leaders, whether they be teachers, curriculum consultants, superintendents, principals, or guidance specialists. All individuals and groups have leadership potential and exhibit leader behavior to some degree. Official leadership assignments may either enhance or reduce the effectiveness of leader behavior. Much attention is given, therefore, to the ways in which the official leader may increase his effectiveness through achieving a mutuality of goals and group solidarity. (Author/WM)
