Forces on Leadership.
Giammatteo, Michael C.; Giammatteo, Dolores M.
Persons in leadership roles, including school administrators, are affected by forces within themselves, within those they lead, and within the environment in which they work. The leader's responses to these forces are conditioned in part by childhood influences, past experience, leadership training, and sociocultural pressures. A set of 15 exercises intended for school administrators is presented in this monograph along with a discussion of the forces whose operations the exercises reveal. Emphasis is placed on the reader's analysis of his or her own tendencies as a leader and as an individual, with the understanding that self-knowledge is a necessary first step toward further personal development.
