For Effective School Leadership, Keep Your Management Team on the Right Track. The Endpaper.
Scarr, L. E.
Executive Educator, v4 n12 p50 Dec 1982
Administrative team management is the best way to provide direction and leadership to an individualistic group of professionals such as educators. Some suggestions to make management teams run smoothly are: (1) use the team to gather facts; (2) make sure the team works with the people (teachers, parents, and business people) who may be affected by its decisions; (3) present material to the team as a series of concrete alternative proposals; and (4) have the team make recommendations from among the alternatives presented. Some administrators will balk at this team management approach, but its benefits far outweigh its risks. (DC)
