The Nature of School Leadership: Global Perspectives 

School leadership is an important area of study within the field of educational leadership, administration & management. Principals, Headteachers, or whichever label is applied to them, are an important element in the success and/or failure of individuals, families, communities and nations. Yet, very little is known or have been researched about what principals actually think about or how they view school leadership.  The presentation proposes an answer to the question, “What is school leadership?” from the perspective of school principals. The data itself is derived from a larger study on “The Nature of School Leadership” which forms the basis for the book, The Nature of School Leadership: Global Practice Perspectives (Miller, 2017, forthcoming).

The seven main findings of the study are that, school leadership is: Personal & Internally Motivated; Policy Driven and Mediated; Change Oriented; Teacher Dependent; Enterprising and Entrepreneurial; Context dependent; and Partnership Dependent.


Paul Miller, PhD, is a Jamaican-born, British-academic and Professor of Educational Leadership & Management in the School of Education & Professional Development at the University of Huddersfield.
