Purpose-Driven Leadership: Defining, Defending and Sustaining a School's Purpose
Holloman, Harold L., Jr.; Rouse, William A., Jr.; Farrington, Vernon
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v10 n4 p437-443 Oct 2007
Purpose-driven leadership is a constructive leadership model that challenges an organization to: define its purpose, maintain integrity, encourage character, prevent burnout and sustain vitality. The model incorporates "best practice language" and the tools needed to foster a meaningful discourse. As school leaders strive to define, defend, and sustain the school's purpose, the purpose-driven leadership model not only builds leadership capacity, but also serves as a catalyst for positive school reform.
