Women Superintendents: Strategies for Success.
Brunner, C. Cryss
Journal of Educational Administration, v36 n2 p160-82 1998
A qualitative study of 12 women superintendents identified seven success strategies: balancing role- and gender-related responsibilities; focusing on caring for children; communicating meaningfully in a "feminine," indirect way; refusing to act like men; letting go of gender expectations that block success; becoming fearless risk-takers with contingent retreat plans; and sharing power and credit.
