Is Your School Better Because You Lead It?
Kafele, Baruti K.
Educational Leadership, v74 n8 p10-14 May 2017
Drawing on the title question of this article, Baruti Kafele prompts leaders to reflect on their work at the helm of their schools. He suggests that to answer this question, school leaders should consider their leadership identity, mission, purpose, and vision. Kafele explores what each of these qualities are and suggests how leaders can go about developing them. He offers examples from his own experiences and those of other school leaders as they identify who they are when they walk into school each morning (for instance, a motivator or nurturer), what their mission is, what drives their work (their purpose), and their vision for both their leadership and the school.
