Thinking about educational leadership
What do we understand by leadership? Do you become a leader by holding a position of authority or is it your actions, irrespective of authority, that make you a leader? And is leadership consistent across all domains? Is corporate leadership the same as educational leadership? The literature on leadership is as vast as it is old. Leaders and the problems of leadership have shaped and continue to shape our communities, social orders and histories. It is important that we critique our understanding of leadership, for the work our leaders do shape the future of things to come.
