Wisdom, Intelligence & Creativity Synthesized
Sternberg, Robert J.
School Administrator, v66 n2 p10-11 Feb 2009
How is it that smart administrators who want to do a good job often find themselves in situations that degenerate into confrontation and, ultimately, termination? In this article, the author discusses why in terms of a model of leadership--which he refers to it as WICS, an acronym for wisdom, intelligence and creativity synthesized. He describes how the model applies to leadership, including both successful and failed leadership.
