It is challenging to find a book written from the viewpoint of Urban Aboriginal Leaders in Canada. A task that I assumed to understand what we as Aboriginal people in Canada could offer, in a sense bridging the understanding of leadership from a traditional Aboriginal worldview and western methodologies of leadership. In 2006, the Canadian census identified that more than 50% of Aboriginal people in Canada now live in urban centers. This phenomenon of migration to cities will have an increased effect on how companies and organizations work with urban Aboriginal people. Offering a potential workforce of highly educated young Aboriginal men and woman with unique leadership styles that need to be recognized and valued within western leadership methodologies. This book will share a perspective on how urban Aboriginal leadership worldviews differ and what can we learn as we move to value and appreciate the relationship with the original peoples of Canada. Originally written as a thesis, this book includes a preface containing details of what has transpired since the presentation and acceptance of the thesis in 2007.

Linking Leadership to Student Learning Linking Leadership to Student Learning clearly shows how school leadership improves student achievement. The book is based on an ambitious five-year study on educational leadership that was sponsored by The Wallace Foundation. The authors studied 43 districts, across 9 states and 180 elementary, middle, and secondary schools. In this book, Kenneth Leithwood, Karen Seashore Louis, and their colleagues report on what they found. They examined leadership at each organizational level in the school system—classroom, school, district, community, and state. Their comprehensive approach to investigating school leadership offers a balanced understanding of how the structures within which leaders operate shape what they do. The results within will have significant implications for future policy and practice. Praise for Linking Leadership to Student Learning «Kenneth Leithwood and Karen Seashore Louis offer a seminal new contribution to the leadership field. They provide a rich and authoritative evidence base that demonstrates clearly just why school leadership is so important and how it promotes successful student learning.»—Pamela Sammons, Ph.D., Professor of Education, Department of Education, University of Oxford, Oxford «This ambitious, groundbreaking, and thought provoking treatment of the link between school leadership and student learning is a testament to the outstanding work of these exemplary scholars. This is a 'must read' for academics and practitioners alike.»—Martha McCarthy, President's Professor, Loyola Marymount University, and Chancellor's Professor Emeritus, Indiana University «The question is no longer whether school and district leader's impact student learning, but rather how they do it. The authors provide a convincing answer, one that recognizes the crucial interaction between leader and locality.»—Daniel L. Duke, Professor of Educational Leadership, University of Virginia

Martin W. Kamau Cross-Cultural Context of School Leadership

Roles of school heads are changing with time, and consequently requiring a wide range of new responsibilities and the use of effective leadership practices. There are also increased aspects of global diasporic activities and rapid flow of ideas. The school context through which leadership practices are exercised is at the same time influenced by national (country) or societal culture. As a result, styles of leadership practices that researchers have found to generate effective results are being adopted across cultures. This book is a research work that explores the need for situational responsiveness as a means toward effective school leadership for outstanding educational outcomes across cultures, as well as in schools with diverse cultures. The research work particularly questions whether practices of effective school leadership are dependent on local, socio-cultural contexts. To seek evidence to these questions and informed by the literature review, a cross-cultural contextual approach of school leadership is adopted. The study compares the perceptions of effective practices of leadership from leaders of secondary schools across two societal cultures, England and Tanzania.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2016 in the subject Education - Educational Tests & Measurements, grade: 2.1, , language: English, abstract: This study investigated the effects of distributed leadership practices on the job satisfaction and motivation of teachers for increased academic performance from the perspective of a basic secondary school situated in an urban area of Kazakhstan. It employed the critical paradigm to examine the teachers' motivational levels and job satisfaction as members of the decision-making processes in the case study school. Therefore, this study used five semi-structured interviews on five randomly selected participants who gave the qualitative data analyzed. The coding of the gathered data identified five key themes analyzed in section 4. The findings indicate that the participants unequivocally challenged the hierarchical leadership style witnessed in the country's public schools since they feel that they are oppressive in nature and demean the teachers' opinions leading to teachers' frustration in the teaching profession and poor schools academic performance. Consequently, this study proposes the distributed leadership form to enable teachers to develop a sense of ownership, responsibility, collaboration, and fulfilled life that arises from being part of the decision-making process in their school.

This third book in the Information Age book series, International Research on School Leadership, focuses onthe changing nature of instructional leadership in the 21st century. Our goal is to examine instructionalleadership from multiple educational and international perspectives. Unlike many leadership books that focuson conceptualizations and personal narratives, the seven chapters provide empirical evidence of howinstructional leadership is evolving in the 21st century. From the effective schools research of the 1980s totoday's relentless calls for improved student performance, attention has focused on the instructional leadership roles and responsibilities of schoolprincipals, headteachers, and educational system leaders. The emphasis on student performance has gone global as evidenced by highly-publicizedinternational studies, such as the Trends in International Math and Science Studies (TIMSS) and the Program for International Student Assessment(PISA), comparing student achievement in different countries.These developments have had substantial effects on school leaders, especially building-level principals and headteachers. Rather than being the onlyones overseeing school improvement aimed at increasing student learning, many school administrators are distributing leadership responsibilities toother administrators and teachers on their campuses.

Many researchers indicated that school principal's leadership role is critical to the effectiveness of schools in their effort towards including all children in mainstream education (Marzano, Walters, McNulty, 2005; Lambert, 2002; Wagner, Kegan, Lahey, Lemons, Garnier, Helsing, Howell, and Rasmussen, 2006,). Indeed, catering for diversity demands a strong leadership that can build a positive school culture that welcomes every child. School principals can play an important role in promoting and sustaining change in schools by shaping school culture. Without their efforts schools can't improve to become better places where all students are welcome, and where all students learn essential academic and non- academic school experience in preparation for life in the community (Salisbury and McGregore, 2005; Anderson, 1999).

The notion of culturally relevant leadership learning builds upon the ideas of developing leader identity and leadership capacity of diverse students. Focusing on four areas of leadership learning: education, training, development, and engagement, this volume presents a model of culturally relevant leadership learning in order to develop all student leaders. It proposes infusing the leadership development process with an understanding of how systemic oppression influences educational contexts and with an engagement in and across cultural differences. Our contexts and differences influence knowledge of self, others, cultural contexts and systems, and ultimately students’ knowledge and enactment of leadership.To this end, culturally relevant leadership development programs equip all students with the knowledge and skills to navigate diverse settings and lead culturally diverse groups and teams. Transforming the framework for how leadership programs are designed will result in contextually relevant leadership development programs and an increase in the breadth and depth of a diverse leadership cadre for our society.

Around the world organizations and the societies of which they are a part are undergoing profound changes. These complex changes pose real challenges to the theoretical and practical foundations of leadership. The call for effective leadership is, perhaps, more urgent now than any other time in human history. Without effective leadership little positive change will happen. This is now certainly the case in education. Without question, the leadership literature is rich in theories and approaches to describing effective leadership. The lessons we have learned so far is that leadership is more complex than was initially thought. Social life is complex and in constant flux; so are organizations, particularly schools. Effective school leaders must possess excellent problem solving skills and these are grounded in their cognition. To delve into the minds of effective school principals while thinking through difficult problems is the challenge this study takes up.

Integrated Quality Management System is a model used for appraising teachers in South Africa and has been in use post-1994. The study shed light on the historical development that shaped the current model used for appraising teachers, especially after 1994. IQMS as a model for appraisal was introduced as a direct response after the collapse of the inspection system which was autocratic and highly subjective. Using a case study approach, two schools in Soweto were purposefully selected because of the strong leadership and data was collected from eleven teachers and two principals. The study aims to investigate the role of the school leadership in mediating IQMS at school level. The study employed interviews, questionnaires and document analysis. The research is concerned with the lived experiences of individual teachers in the confines of the environment that they are most comfortable in. This research was taken from the interpretivist position which views the world as constructed by means of multi perspectives. The study argues that the leadership at school level has a prominent role to play in mediating IQMS despite the tensions inherent therein.

Between email, websites, apps, updates, tweets, attachments, infographics, YouTube, and unceasing notifications, most people are inundated with digital detritus, and they either grow to ignore it or get swept under it. Effective blended leaders see these distractions as spurs to action, models, test cases, remixable commodities, and learning opportunities.

In keeping with the mission of the ILA, the International Leadership Series Building Leadership Bridges connects ways of researching, imagining, and experiencing leadership across cultures, over time, and around the world. Praise for The Embodiment of Leadership «Read this book to experience an artistic and more robust sense of leadership; to rise to the challenge to gain alignment in mind, body, and spirit; and to heed the call to heal the shadows we as leaders sometimes cast over our collective humanity. Read this book to become more whole.» —Shann Ray Ferch, professor of leadership studies, Gonzaga University «For once leadership expertsconsider the mind-body problem from the perspective of the latter—the body. Those with an interest inhow the body is brought to bear on the exercise ofleadership would do wellto exploreThe Embodiment of Leadership.» —Barbara Kellerman, James MacGregor Burns Lecturer in Public Leadership, John F. Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University «The Embodiment of Leadership goes beyond the banal by using our body experiences as the point of departure in deciphering the leadership conundrum. Anyone interested in the study of leadership would do well to pay attention to this book.» —Manfred F. R. Kets de Vries, Distinguished Clinical Professor of Leadership and Organiza-tional Change, The Raoul de Vitry d'Avaucourt Chaired Professor of Leadership Development, INSEAD «Leadership is a social construction. The Embodiment of Leadership presents a multifaceted approach to understanding how we, as a society, define, create, and contend with leaders and leadership. Serious scholars and students of leadership need to read this.» —Ronald E. Riggio, Kravis Leadership Institute, Claremont McKenna College
