4 Building Professional Capital (Fullan)
Professional capital has three components: human, social, and decisional. Human capital is about the qualities of individuals. Strangely, though, you can't accumulate much human capital by focusing only on the capital of individuals. Human capital must be complemented by social capital—groups working hard in focused and committed ways to bring about substantial improvements. Social capital can raise individual human capital—a good team, school, or system lifts everyone. But, as we often see in sports, higher individual human capital—a few brilliant stars—does not necessarily improve the overall team.
