Here are a few more reflection points for educational leaders. Feel free to comment – even if you are not an educational leader, but also if you find yourself in any leadership position. Simply apply to your own field.
We Need Noncoercive Lead-Management from the State Superintendent to the Teacher by William Glasser
- “…teachers as well as administrators are burdened with a method of management that limits their ability to succeed…” (Pg. 28)
- “Quality always leads to increased productivity.” (Pg. 30)
- “There would be no coercion, and, therefore, no discipline problems, as they do not occur in a noncoercive atmosphere.” (Pg. 35)
- “…when there is a dispute between the leader and the worker, the leader makes it clear to the worker that this is a problem they can solve together.” (Pg. 36)
- “Therefore, the essence of good managing is caring and hard work.” (Pg. 37)
