Transformational Leadership in Education: An Autobiography

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This autobiographical study addresses the question of how/why have I as a principal been able to create a transformational education environment. To uncover how transformation has taken place in my schools, I drew upon 298 pages of reflective papers written over nine courses of my M. Ed. program, along with an additional five years’ worth of personal digital notes taken from each course and the anecdotal records of situations that occurred in my practice. Using Peter Senge’s book The Fifth Discipline, as a theoretical lens, I unearthed seven themes: social awareness; systems thinking; personal mastery; mental models; shared vision; team learning and leadership model. The project concludes with eleven tips for new or experienced principals looking to create a transformational education community.
