The Changing Way of Leading
Sytsma, Sandra
International Journal of Educational Reform, v18 n3 p185-199 Sum 2009
This conceptual article explores the changing way of leading. It proposes that in contrast to the primarily outer actions that characterize educational change, the inner and outer dimensions of leaders are necessary to change what constitutes leading, thereby making it more appropriate to our times. The unfolding of leading actions and the enfolding making of meaning are seen as being immanent and together productive of a creative field of change for self and others. The article is intended as a provocateur for leaders to reflect on their leading, and it is dedicated to leaders in schools who have lost their way but courageously engaged the inner dimension of meaning making to shape a changing and growth enhancing way of leading.
