Assessing the PD Needs
Transitioning to Leadership
 Personal Change and System Change
 Embracing leadership is a personal activity involving a willingness to
challenges one’s own beliefs and values and commit to making change
 The courage to change at a personal level creates the courage to address
school improvement and organizational change using one’s new leadership
style
 Purpose and Meaning
 Educators need to experience greater meaningfulness in their work and feel
more responsible in order to motivate them to achieve better outcomes beyond
their present jobs - Mayrowetz et al. (2007)
 We cannot underestimate the importance of meaning and purpose in the personal
lives of educators if we wish to encourage them to transition to leadership
Assessing the PD Needs
Transitioning to Leadership
 Leadership as an Interactive Process
 Leadership is an interactional, multi-level relational process,
interplay between “structure” (tasks) and “agency” (people’s
identities). How the “self ” relates to others, to the
organizational structure and the meta-fields of politics, the
economy and culture. –Rayner & Gunter (2005)

If we recognize that leadership is a complex, interactive process then
we can understand the multiple influences that attract and retain
aspiring leaders
