Lessons from the Business Literature. The School Improvement Leader: Four Perspectives on Change in Schools.
This training module, one of four designed to help train people in effective leadership, provides materials suitable for an all-day workshop, two half-days, or a series of shorter sessions. Six activities help to describe the practices and lessons of well-managed companies. These include: (1) Managing vs. Lending; (2) Characteristics of Exceptional Leaders; (3) What Business Are You Really In?; (4) Upside Down Organizational Structure; (5) Creating a Vision for Your School; and (6) Action Planning. The objective of the workshop is to distinguish between management and leadership, to identify characteristics of outstanding organizations, and to identify how current business literature applies to leadership. Reproduction of discussion aids and other support materials for overhead projection is suggested. This training module guides but does not dictate any particular method of presentation. (LAP)
