It's Not the "What," It's the "How": Four Key Behaviors for Authentic Leadership in Early Intervention
LaRocco, Diana J.; Bruns, Deborah A.
Young Exceptional Children, v16 n2 p33-44 Jun 2013
This article highlights four key behaviors that typify authentic leadership. Authentic leaders (1) exercise influence to reach shared goals; (2) engage in continuous learning; (3) build and nurture relationships; and (4) model behaviors they want others to display. Although the behaviors are presented as distinct, they are inextricably linked and can be observed happening simultaneously. The four behaviors and indicators listed in Table 1 and described here are offered as a starting point for thinking about the many ways in which early intervention professionals can and do demonstrate leadership with and on behalf of young children, parents, caregivers, colleagues, and administrators. (Contains 1 table and 3 boxes.)
