Developing Sustainable Leadership
Davies, Brent
Management in Education, v21 n3 p4-9 2007
The emphasis on short-term accountability measures has often prioritised the use of short-term management strategies to meet test and Ofsted measures. Moving away from short-termism to more fundamental consideration of sustainable leadership is the focus of this paper. While it would be naive or unrealistic to suggest that school leaders do not have to respond to short-term accountability targets and managerial imperatives, it is important that these responses are set against sustainable leadership factors. In this article, the author proposes nine sustainable leadership factors that should be developed and deployed to battle with the dangers of managerial short-termism. These factors have been drawn from recent research of sustainable and strategically successful schools. (Contains 2 figures.)
