Overview

Educational Administration: Leading with Mind and Heart, 2nd edition takes an organization-development approach to producing effective leadership. Picture yourself standing in the middle of a dense forest. Suppose you were asked to describe the characteristics of the forest; what types of trees are growing in the forest; how many acres of trees are there; where are the trees thriving; where are they not? Faced with this proposition, most people would not know where to start and "would not be able to see the forest for the trees." Newly appointed school administrators often have these same feelings of confusion when faced with the prospect of having to assume a leadership role in a complex organization like a school or school system. Where does one start? An effective way to start would be to systematically examine the components that make up an organization. Such a system of organizational diagnosis and prescription will lead to a comprehensive and integrated analysis of the organization's strengths and weaknesses and point the way toward possible improvement. This book suggests such a sequential and systematic approach. Utilizing it effectively can produce dramatic and useful results.
