Leadership and Gender: Conclusions Drawn from Wildrose School
Burns, Amy M.
International Electronic Journal for Leadership in Learning, v10 n14 2006
In this article, I present the findings of a single-site case study which examined the role of gender in constituent group perceptions of effective female leadership. First, a brief description of the Wildrose School community context is presented followed by an overview of relevant literature on female leadership. The emergent themes regarding the principal leadership in Wildrose School are then given. These include the importance of relationships, the role of self-awareness in leadership, and the life of a leader. Finally, the impact of gender on perceptions of leadership efficacy and success are discussed. (Contains 1 endnote.)
