Key challenges for educational leaders
This text considers some of the difficulties educational leaders face, such as dealing with underperforming staff, implementing change, work/life balance, and dealing with confrontational student behaviour.
My thoughts –
- In a teaching principal position many of the relationship/communication issues highlighted in this text seem to be more manageable. Perhaps because of the small number of staff to develop relationships with, and also the closeness within which we work. Dealing with difficult issues quickly is difficult, but if the students are kept as the priority in the situation it is easier to make necessary decisions.
