Transformational Leadership

This concept was introduced by leadership expert James McGregor Burns and later developed and expanded on by researcher Bernard M. Bass.

There are four elements to Transformational Leadership
Developing the Vision: the Leader will create a vision of the future that excites and will convert prospective followers.

Selling the Vision: the Leader must create trust between he/she and the followers and constantly work to convince others to join the bandwagon.

Going Forward: the route may not be crystal clear to the Leader, but with a strong vision the direction will be known. A Transformational Leader knows that there will be obstacles in his/her way.

Leading the Charge: the Leader must be front and center while pushing the vision. He/She must be perceptible and not hide behind the group. It is the immovable commitment that they obtain that creates the qualification to be a Transformational Leader.
Five Elements of Instructional Leadership
Prioritize: the Leader will make sure that important aspects of followers' lives are made a priority; for example, education.

Align: the Leader aligns schedules and features such as curriculum so that the effectiveness of the followers' education can be met at its full potential.

Assess: the Leader will periodically assess, score, interpret, and analyze followers' development to ensure improvement.

Monitor: this step is crucial to obtain results. The Leader must inspect instructional changes before he/she can expect improvements.

Learn: the Leader has an obligation to be well-informed by his followers to develop a continuous learning environment.
Distributed Leadership...is a leadership approach in which collaborative working is undertaken between individuals who trust and respect each other’s contribution (Jones, Harvey, Lefoe, Ryland 2013, p. 21).
