8 Characteristics of the Innovative Leader

8 Characteristics of the Innovative Leader | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Ultimately, an innovative leader should try to create new ideas, but it is more important that they create a culture of innovation.  We often talk about empowering people and then getting out of their way, but what is often missed in the process is removing some of those barriers that they will encounter along the way.  


This why it is so important to spend time in the classrooms, see what teaching and learning looks like, and then help to create a better tomorrow for our students and educators.  Again though, at the heart of innovation is people, not stuff.  If we always keep that at the forefront of our work, we are more likely to create an innovative culture.

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.


None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

We definitely need to challenge the status quo, but it will always be more effective if it is a 'propositional challenge, rather than an oppositional challenge'.

Leadership Communication Tools

Leadership Communication Tools | Research Capacity-Building in Africa | Scoop.it

Communicating in today’s world requires both a new mindset and a new toolset. Like a maestro conducting a symphony, savvy leaders pay attention to the sound, the effect, the and the instruments needed to strike just the right notes.

 

Some schools have a full time communications person. Others have none.

 

Regardless, a school leader can set just the right tone with a good strategy and a 21st Century set of tools.
