Leadership Style in Education

Leadership style in an educational institution settting should be one aimed at giving subordinates or the students their voices.
In this regard a democratic or participatory leadership style will be appropriate.


Education Leaders

An important question. They are the mass makers of high tech new generation. They should have long term vision to ensure the best class facilities are provided and good responsible citizens for the society are produced.

Leadership is Still Situational

Leadership styles in education really don't change in that it is the leader who uses the style that is appropriate for the follower - a new student may need a different style from a seasoned student who is engaged and operating from a position of independent study.
The key is to not overlead or underlead - just meet / adapt to the need, (situational leadership) which is the greatest challenge.
