Leadership For Learning: A Research-Based Model And Taxonomy Of Behaviors
Source: Vanderbilt University
In this paper, the authors examine the components of leadership for learning employing research on highly productive schools and school districts and high performing principals and superintendents, using a three-dimensional model of productivity. The authors capture the knowledge base of leadership for learning under eight major dimensions: vision for learning, instructional program, curricular program, assessment program, communities of learning, resource acquisition and use, organizational culture, and advocacy. Over the last half century a great deal has been written about the importance of leadership, in general and in relation to organizational performance in particular. Academics, practitioners, and reviewers from every field of study have concluded that leadership is a central variable in the equation that defines organizational success.
