Transformational Change in Education
The objectives of this study is to examine and study a leaders role in an international school setting. More specifically when dealing with transformational changes or a crisis and what they should do to manage them in order to get a positively successful outcome whilst maintaining the Organisation’s (school’s) survival. The main research questions to be answered in this study are: 1. Which factors influence transformational changes to fail? 2. How do transformational changes cause organizational crisis? 3. What are the leaders competencies to lead change and crisis? 4. What needs to be done for successful transformational changes? What is the Principal’s (Head’s, Headmaster’s) role as the key leader in this organisation? The head of the school unit addresses a variety of issues on a daily basis in an effort to effectively perform his/her role. Is every Head prepared for crisis management and transformational change? This last question is very important as an organisation can plan change and ensure the people with the appropriate skillset are leading the process but a crisis cannot be predicted and this may be detrimental. In order for the headmaster to fulfil his/her role and improve the management of the school unit, I consider it appropriate to give institutional assistance to the managerial role of the headmaster and begin to consolidate serious leadership training. Finally I would like to demonstrate how transformational leaders should act, and what are the characteristics, the competencies and the skills that they must possess to overcome any obstacles and motivate employees (teachers and admin staff) to react positively during organisational changes or a crisis.
