Cultivating a Taste for Leadership
Olson, Lynn
Education Week, v27 n33 p20, 22-23 Apr 2008
Most school districts wait for leadership talent to emerge by posting job openings and then seeing who applies. Some districts and charter-management organizations are starting to take a more active role in identifying and supporting future principals earlier in their careers. This more systematic approach to leadership development, known as "succession planning," has long been common in business, the military, and other fields. Now, a combination of factors is causing school systems both here and abroad to take succession planning more seriously.
