Becoming a Beginning Principal of an Independent School: Keys to an effective transition (Digital Edition)


This study has been written by Steve Bagi, a consulting psychologist who specialises in leadership development and team building in the educational sector. Bagi outlines the findings of his PhD in educational leadership, which examined the experiences of beginning principals of Independent schools. For those getting underway as Principal, Becoming a Beginning Principal is an excellent and indispensable review and checklist for reflection and action. It also provides valuable insight for school people stepping up into new leadership responsibilities and a succinct wake up call to selection committees and boards in their stewardship of leadership succession. The journal features a Foreword by Brad Adams, Director of Education at CIRCLE, and an Afterword by Dr Philip SA Cummins, Managing Director of CIRCLE.
