Passionate Leadership
Davies, Brent; Brighouse, Tim
Management in Education, v24 n1 p4-6 2010
Passionate leadership is about energy, commitment, a belief that every child can learn and will learn, a concern with social justice and the optimism that people can make a difference. The authors argue that passion survives and prospers and is a moral driving force in ensuring children becoming all they can become. That brings them to the other thing about their definition of passionate school leadership--for them it's a passion to change things for the better, a passion with a moral foundation. The authors hope that leaders in education will use it to reframe and reignite their own passion for learning and education which is at the cornerstone of all they do. In this article, the authors share some ideas on what passionate leaders do.
