Some Thoughts about Leadership.
Marsee, Stuart E.
The administrator must learn to organize personnel and to delegate responsibilities with commensurate authority while maintaining an impersonal yet friendly, approachable, consistent, and fair manner. Recognizing that even the best administrator is prone to make some mistakes and that he cannot satisfy everyone all the time is also important. The best administrator makes the ideas of others work more often than creating them. Suggestions to administrators for improving communication include: listen more carefully; be available; never hesitate to ask for advice; welcome sincere criticism; involve others in decision-making; utilize the abilities of the total staff; minimize the levels of administration and supervision; involve faculty in curriculum development; and provide the opportunity for the one who asks a question to also propose a solution. Good administrations result from pride in accomplishments but with the full realization that perfection is constantly sought and never attained. (MB)
