For this assignment, you are asked to research a specific leadership theory that you feel would be appropriate for the principal of your local elementary school and answer the following questions:
What are the principles of the theory?
What kinds of actions would a leader following this theory take?
How might the existing culture of your school affect the success of this leadership approach?
How might the diversity of cultures in the school community affect the success of this approach?
Assume that your school has a problem with absenteeism. What steps would a leader, using the theory you have selected, take to address this problem? How would the leader involve the community?
Be sure to conduct good academic research. Research is not a summary of one or two sources but is a synthesis (blend) of information from a variety of sources. Be sure to include a parenthetical reference for each source used and list it as a reference using APA format.
