Women Leaders Tell Their Stories
Grady, Marilyn L.; Curley, Virginia Russell; Lacost, Barbara
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v6 n4 p275-291 Oct 2008
The purpose of this research study was to identify examples of women education leaders at their best. There were two parts to the study procedures. First, the women were asked to write a case story about a time when they were involved in a successful leadership experience. Second, the women were divided into small groups of 5-8. In the small groups, each participant was invited to present her story and allow an opportunity for group participants to ask clarifying questions and to comment on the stories. Each of the stories is presented as told by the participant. A title has been given to each story. The stories are then examined in relation to Kouzes and Posner's five leadership practices and ten leadership commitments.
