Stretching Leadership: A Distributed Perspective for School Counselor Leaders
Janson, Chris; Stone, Carolyn; Clark, Mary Ann
Professional School Counseling, v13 n2 p98-106 Dec 2009
Leadership is a central role of the school counselor. However, this role is often intimidating to school counselors and school counseling students when viewed as a solitary undertaking. In contrast to the view that leadership is an individual responsibility, the distributed leadership perspective offers a counterview in which school leadership is stretched over multiple leaders. The application of the distributed leadership perspective to school counseling practice might serve to alleviate school counselor apprehension regarding leadership, while contributing to an understanding of "how" this leadership occurs, as well as how it might be improved.
