Essential Skills for Principals.
Terry, Paul M.
Thrust for Educational Leadership, v29 n1 p28-32 Sep-Oct 1999
No matter what standards they follow, principals must be skilled team builders, instructional leaders, and visionary risk-takers. There are five emerging roles: historian, cheerleader, lightning rod, landscaper (environmental scanner), and anthropologist. To succeed, principals must be empowered by districts, become authentic leaders, and make time for reflection. Contains 10 references. (MLH)
