Busch, Steve; Johnson, Shirley; Robles-Piña, Rebecca; Slate, John R.
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n3 Jul-Sep 2009
In this study, the researchers examined principal behaviors related with change in school climate. That is, the manner in which principals managed change within their schools and the impact of these change behaviors on the school climate was investigated. Through use of the Leadership Profile (Johnson, 2003) and the Organizational Health Inventory (Fairman, 1979), principals' Usual Change behaviors were statistically significant and positively related to the Organizational Health Dimensions of Resource Utilization and Innovativeness. Moreover, principals' Needs and Stress Change behaviors were statistically significant and negatively correlated to the Organizational Health Dimension of Goal Focus. Implications of these findings are discussed.
