Management and Leadership Issues for School Building Leaders
Tobin, James
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v9 n1 Mar 2014
School principals are confronted with a variety of issues as they provide leadership and organization to their schools. Evidence is growing that successful school leaders influence achievement through the support and development of effective teachers and the implementation of effective organizational practice (Davis, Darling-Hammond, LaPointe, & Meyerson, 2005). On occasion it takes specific leadership behaviors from the principal to begin to resolve the issues; at other times it takes organizational and management skills. The classroom activity in this instructional module is designed to provide options for an instructor in developing the background knowledge and information to provide leadership and/or the organizational and management skills necessary for educational administration candidates to begin developing personal approaches to organizational behavior. Discussions and/or reactions after each presentation provide opportunities to focus attention on establishing a systems perspective for guiding administrative behavior as issues are clarified and solutions are identified, including anticipated and unanticipated consequences.
