Lead, Follow, or Get Out of the Way. Transformational Leadership.
Pejza, John P.
This paper asserts that traditional leadership models are inappropriate for Catholic schools and offers a new paradigm based on transformational Christian leadership. Christian leadership is a function of the group that is not synonymous with position or authority. Everyone has the potential to be a leader. Such leadership is communal, generative of new leaders, service-oriented, and transformative. The best way to lead is to empower others. Leadership based on the leadership of Christ looks to the entire school community to empower others. Contains 39 references. (LMI)
