Leadership Reflection

29 Jun

wpe21.jpg (6164 bytes)It is suggested that there are five dimensions of leadership identified by Thomas Sergiovanni. To be an effective leader in a school these need to be evident. These dimensions, or leadership forces as he called them, are:

  • The technical leader who uses sound management practices and skills to plan, organise and coordinate the many activities which ensure the smooth running of the school.
  • The human leader who employs human relations skills to build the morale of staff and students and create a sense of community in the school.
  • The educational leader who brings expert professional knowledge and skills to bear on key learning processes such as curriculum development, goal formation, teaching effectiveness and supervision of staff.
  • The symbolic leader who expressly models through words and actions what is of unique importance and value in the school and who gives the school community a clear sense of meaning and direction.
  • The cultural leader who assumes the role of ‘high priest’ and emphasises the enduring values, beliefs and practices which give the school community its unique meaning and identity.
