Make Time to Recharge: Growth and Renewal Play Key Roles in Sustaining School Leaders
Drago-Severson, Ellie; Blum-DeStefano, Jessica
Journal of Staff Development, v36 n4 p38-42 Aug 2015
Being a school leader in any role is hard, gratifying, and a gift of love. While it can be enormously satisfying to serve students, teachers, families, and school communities, leaders need to refill themselves in order to continue giving to others. This article highlights a learning-oriented model of leadership development and capacity building that emphasizes the importance of caring for one's own self-development and renewal while caring for and supporting others. It also highlights the real-life renewal hopes and strategies of practicing school leaders who have shared their stories with the authors in their teaching, consulting, and longitudinal research.
