The Hurried Principal: A Manual of Strategies for Time Management.
Furman, Robert L.; Zibrida, Richard J.
Practical strategies to help principals manage their time more effectively are offered in this guidebook. Because superintendents' expectations of principals' duties often contrast with the amount of time principals actually expend in performing various duties, this lack of understanding and time results in the "hurried principal syndrome." Practical suggestions are offered for various situations, some of which include the following: identifying goals; organizing memos and correspondence; scheduling appointments; dealing with conflicts and parent concerns; handling telephone distractions and drop-in visits; delegating tasks; reducing transaction costs; acting as a systems manager; using a computer for correspondence and creating a research bank; and coping with stress.
