Assessing the PD Needs Transitioning to Leadership Personal Change and System Change Embracing leadership is a personal activity involving a willingness to challenges one’s own beliefs and values and commit to making change The courage to change at a personal level creates the courage to address school improvement and organizational change using one’s new leadership style Purpose and Meaning Educators need to experience greater meaningfulness in their work and feel more responsible in order to motivate them to achieve better outcomes beyond their present jobs - Mayrowetz et al. (2007) We cannot underestimate the importance of meaning and purpose in the personal lives of educators if we wish to encourage them to transition to leadership
Assessing the PD Needs Transitioning to Leadership Leadership as an Interactive Process Leadership is an interactional, multi-level relational process, interplay between “structure” (tasks) and “agency” (people’s identities). How the “self” relates to others, to the organizational structure and the meta-fields of politics, the economy and culture. – Rayner & Gunter (2005) If we recognize that leadership is a complex, interactive process then we can understand the multiple influences that attract and retain aspiring leaders
