What Every Principal Should Know About Ethical and Spiritual Leadership



August 2013 | 120 pages | Corwin
The third in its series, What Every Principal Should Know About Ethical and Spiritual Leadership recognizes that effective headteachers possess a sound ethical and spiritual foundation in their leadership styles.

In this book, aspiring, new, and experienced headteachers will learn how to find the core values that drive their leadership, reflect on and renew the moral imperatives of the headship, and hone their abilities in resolving dilemmas in sound and ethical ways.
