The Art of Educational Leadership: Balancing Performance and Accountability
English, Fenwick W.
SAGE Publications (CA)
"The Art of Educational Leadership: Balancing Performance and Accountability" stresses the human side of leadership. No other text on this topic demonstrates so ably the importance of artistry in leadership in a field that has been lopsidedly dominated by concepts informed by science. Presenting the idea that leadership is an art, this book exemplifies a balance between the science and the art of educational leadership; connects content material to self-discovery; and portrays multicultural leadership in action. After a preface, the book contains the following chapters: (1) The Leadership Challenge; (2) Archetypes of Leadership in the Human Experience; (3) Mental Prisms of Leadership; (4) Individual Human Agency and Principles of Action; (5) Leadership as Artful Performance; (6) Understanding the Landscape of Educational Leadership; (7) Balancing Performance and Accountability; and (8) Artful Performance and National Standards. An index is included. (Individual chapters contain references.)
