The Principal as Steward. The Leadership & Management Series.
Stewardship is the willingness of the leader to serve for the well-being of the school, rather than through controlling stakeholders. Stewards are capable of turning their schools into learning organizations, in which all stakeholders share a feeling of ownership. This book is a sequel to "The Principal's Edge," which covered the first 9 of the 21 domains of knowledge and skills necessary for a practicing principal. The book deals with the next nine domains of knowledge and skills, which include student guidance and development, staff development, measurement and evaluation, resource allocation, motivation of others, interpersonal sensitivity, oral and nonverbal expression, written expression, and philosophical and cultural values. The chapters focus on how the steward-principal can effectively carry out these functions. Each chapter concludes with a summation and questions for reflection. Six figures are included. (Contains 45 references.) (LMI)
