Voices of Women in the Field: The Top 10 Things We Learned about Being a Department Chair
Danielson, Lana; Schulte, Laura
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v5 n1 p77-81 Jan 2007

During our "internship" in the chair position we frequently identified lessons we were learning, jokingly adding them to our "Top 10" list. What follows is our refined list of advice we would share with other new chairs.
