Transformational Leadership and Globalization: Attitudes of School Principals in Kuwait
Alsaeedi, Farraj; Male, Trevor
Educational Management Administration & Leadership, v41 n5 p640-657 Sep 2013
The study explores the attitudes of a sample of school principals in a Kuwaiti local authority towards the need for transformational leadership, the use of its behaviours, whether these school leaders are ready to behave in diverse ways or whether there are barriers that prevent them from acting in such a manner. The findings of this study demonstrate that the participants agreed on the need for transformational leadership and had positive attitudes towards its behaviours. Although the participants identified some barriers to the application of this leadership style, the results indicated that the participants were generally ready to promote transformational leadership behaviours.
