Living Leadership in an Era of Change
Fennell, Hope-Arlene
International Journal of Leadership in Education, v8 n2 p145-165 Apr 2005
This article discusses the findings from a recently completed two-year study of women principals' lived experiences with leadership. It focuses on the six women's lived experiences with leading change in their school. Data were collected using in-depth, phenomenological interviews, observations of the principals' work in schools, and field notes. The findings emphasize shared leadership, conceptions of power as an enabling source of energy within the school, the emphasis on a common vision and dialogue within each of the schools, and the need to educate future leaders and researchers of leadership in a variety of philosophical and theoretical perspectives.
