Successful and Sustained Leadership: A Case Study of a Jesuit High School President
García-Tuñón, Guillermo M.; Cistone, Peter J.; Reio, Thomas G., Jr.
Education and Urban Society, v48 n6 p611-623 Jul 2016
The purpose of this research was to examine the factors and elements that contributed to the success and longevity of an exemplary Jesuit high school leader. Through an exemplary case study approach, qualitative and quantitative data were collected. Instead of merely employing one of two leadership frames, the convergent evidence suggested that multiple leadership frames (structural, human resource, political, and symbolic) were employed by the research participant in the service of being a unique and successful leader. The research highlighted the need to draw from several leadership frames for best success.
