Leadership today continues to be more challenging and involving, and it requires preparation. New environmental challenges continue to emerge, and educational leaders must adapt to changing environments. Leadership calls for new ways of being in the world, not in oppositional isolation or confrontation, but in convivial cooperation which brings a world of new possibilities and opportunities. Educational leaders have multidisciplinary, interwoven roles. 


Today’s leaders’ must demonstrate energy and commitment. They need the ability to communicate effectively, generate human interaction and use available information to transform their institutions into learning organizations. They have to inquire, evaluate information and allocate resources. They are compelled to be community sensitive and visionary requiring an understanding of the impact of technological advances, decision-making processes and methods of becoming agents of change for the new era.



Leadership development is a career-long, if not a lifelong process. Effective leadership requires knowledge of oneself through individualized and group assessments. The core of any executive leadership development program should be the use of assessments for development where a variety of assessment instruments are embedded in the programs.
