Creative Leadership: A Challenge of Our Times
Stoll, Louise; Temperley, Julie
School Leadership & Management, v29 n1 p65-78 Feb 2009
In times of constant change, teachers need to be flexible, adaptable and creative. This article argues that promoting creativity of staff to enhance twenty-first century learning is a fundamental challenge for school leadership today. Drawing on the findings of a research and development project involving senior leadership teams and a local authority team, the nature of creative leadership is explored along with conditions leaders establish to support colleagues' creativity. The concept of creative leadership also raises questions about context, levels of creativity, the nature of risk taking, and measuring impact, among others. Such issues require further investigation.
