Towards Distributed Leadership as Standards-Based Practice in British Columbia
Cherkowski, Sabre; Brown, Willow
Canadian Journal of Education, v36 n3 p23-46 2013
This narrative study of four BC principals was an initial investigation of distributed leadership using their provincial leadership standards as an organizing framework. The researchers invited participants to describe their understanding and practice of distributed leadership in terms of the Standards. Findings revealed three themes, or sets of administrative practices, that enrich operational understanding of distributed leadership: establishing a shared vision of distributed leadership, leading with character and integrity, and enabling others to find their leadership voice. The practice of establishing distributed leadership was found to be coherent with the development of a sustainable learning community and with the moral stewardship emphasis of the provincial standards.
