Do We Need Leaders?
|Above copied from the The Chronicle of Higher Education|
The school is a learning community and leadership is not something integral to a community of learners. Instead, an ongoing collaborative effort among educators fuels a learning community. Much of the challenges we now face cannot really be addressed by a leader, but only through a collective effort. Climate change is the best example. How we mitigate the effects of climate change crucially depends not on the leader inside ourselves, but on the collaborator inside each and everyone of us. What we really need is an ability to share, not the ability to lead.
Biswas says a lot more and I strongly recommend reading her commentary.
