Building Leadership Skills with Evaluation Techniques
Hutton, Dawn
International Journal of Educational Leadership Preparation, v4 n3 Jul-Sep 2009
The career of educational administrator does not lend itself well to allowing new principals to practice their skills. Because of the element of responsibility for administrators, most principals are reluctant to relinquish power to interns in fear of their failure. As a result, educational leadership programs struggle to find appropriate methods of instruction to fill the gaps in the practice field. New administrators need to be prepared to delegate appropriately and find ways for everyone to work toward a common goal. Principal preparation programs at many universities have established the foundation of making this process a learned behavior; however, there is much more work needed to achieve competence in delegating. An ongoing practice must occur for future administrators to learn the skills necessary to delegate. All activities and discussions should revolve around the practice of deciding who the leader is, what each person's responsibility should be, and how can the team works.
