Practical Strategies for School Counsellor Leadership: The Leadership Challenge Model
Shillingford, Margaret
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v16 n4 p497-515 2013
It is crucial to the progression of the school counselling profession that counsellors-in-training receive the training, knowledge, and practice in leadership that they need to counter systemic challenges that they may face. Effective leadership practices have been shown in research to be instrumental in promoting program delivery success in the school counselling profession. However, the preparation and eventual practice for leadership engagement of these professionals have been questioned in the literature and further suggests the need for counsellor educators to provide more structural leadership approaches with their students. This article explores the Leadership Challenge Model (Kouzes & Posner, 1995) as a framework for bridging leadership theory and practice through practical strategies applicable to Counselor Education programs. The strategies introduced may be useful in preparing school counsellors for more effective leadership practices.
