Leading for Change: How Leadership Style Impacts Teachers' Experience
Procek, Cara
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Northeastern University
This research study explored how one middle school in a suburban New Hampshire town translates existing models of leadership into practice and how teachers experience these differences in practice. The research examined how school leaders balance formal and cultural models of leadership to affect change on a day-to-day level. In addition, the research explored how a particular context, including climate and culture, of a district affects the implementation of a leadership model. Finally, it examined how teachers perceive and experience cultural and formal models of leadership and the change process they generate. This research followed a single site case study of one middle school and included embedded cases studying various groups and stakeholders within the school.
