Teachers' Perceptions of Principals Affect Collaborative Efforts.
Kirby, Peggy C.; Blase, Joseph J.
NASSP Bulletin, v75 n538 p111-15 Nov 1991
If teachers perceive their principals as "closed"--inaccessible, unsupportive, and insecure--they are wary of efforts toward increased collaboration. With closed principals, teachers resort to micropolitical strategies, including avoidance, excessive rationality, ingratiation, confrontation, coalition-building, and deliberate noncompliance. Principals should assess their leadership style to determine how they present themselves. (three references) (MLH)
