Approaches to Leadership: What Comes with Experience?
Macmillan, Robert B.
Educational Management & Administration, v26 n2 p173-84 Apr 1998
In a study investigating principals' career life cycles, five urban secondary principals were interviewed. When analyzing interviewees' perceptions of their leadership, different role perceptions emerged that appeared to be influenced by length of time in service. Experience may lead to a lessening of creative tension via intrusion of current reality into principals' vision of what is achievable. (15 references) (MLH)
