Transformation Based Education Leaders--The Wheels That Drive Successful Institutions for Sustainable Educational Excellence
Leonard, Bobby
Journal of Educational Technology, v2 n4 p40-43 Jan-Mar 2006
In this article, author Bobby Leonard asserts that the best institutions in India today are good in Policies Systems and administration. However, the key is developing a new generation of education based workforce under the hands of a good leader. India requires transformational leaders, leaders who can transform educational systems and who are capable of building successful, globally accepted models of education with high consideration given to quality of the outcome. Herein, Leonard suggests that the critical issue is the leadership qualities of administrators and principals, their responses to change, and effective uses of technology. He goes on to discuss transformational leadership, the Transformation Leadership Matrix, and how transformational leadership correlates to a strategic framework. Leonard concludes that in order to put India on the global education map, it needs leaders who can change, are powerful in aligning their vision, can wade smoothly through complex situations, and are willing to explore themselves.
