Developing Spiritual Potentialities, Principles and Practices of Leadership: A Self Study in Teacher Education
Clarken, Rodney H.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association (New York, NY, Mar 24-28, 2008)
How can we identify and then develop the capacities, standards and actions related to effective leadership? This paper suggests that the ability to effectively lead can be strongly and positively influenced by spiritual principles and practices. Spiritual aspects of leadership are often ignored, discounted or discredited in much of the literature. How to develop and integrate spiritual capabilities, values and processes of effective leadership is described. A self study of the author's experiences as a leader of a school of education applying these potentialities, principles and practices is briefly presented. The three guiding potentialities, principles and practice of truth, love and justice, will be presented as keys to effective leadership.
