What is your style of leadership? Affiliative Leadership Coaching Leadership Democratic Leadership Authoritative Leadership High on social leadership but low on task leadership High on task and social behaviours But used least often as time-consuming Used with ‘experienced followers’ Close to delegation High on task, but low on social leadership.

“ Most definitions of Leadership reflect the assumption that it involves a social influence process whereby intentional influence is exerted by one person [or group] over other people [or groups] to structure the activities and relationships in a group or organisation”
“ Managing is maintaining efficiently and effectively current organisational arrangement. While managing well often exhibits leadership skills, the overall function is towards maintenance rather than change. I prize both management and leading and attach no special value to either since different setting and times call for varied responses.”
(Cuban 1988 Cited in Bush 2003)

Moving from one triangle with a ‘ situational apex ’ to a flattened
“ In developing a distributed perspective on leadership, we moved beyond acknowledging leadership practice as an organisational property in order to investigate how leadership might be conceptualized as a distributed practice stretched over the social and situational contexts of the school”
Does your school reflect this style of leadership?

If no, why not?
