Department or Administrative Unit
Center for Teaching and Learning
Strategic leadership is built upon traits and actions that encompass the successful execution of all leadership styles. In a world that is rapidly changing, strategic leadership in schools guides school leader through assuring constant improvement process by anticipating future trends and planning for them and noting that plans must be flexible to respond to changes. All planning and change processes must be guided by a strong school vision. To determine how strategic leadership is perceived by teachers in their school, a survey was administered to thirty candidates in a school administration. Based on the analysis of the data, it can be concluded that more work needs to be done by our school leaders to effectively communicate the purpose of strategic plans.
