Setting your mind on mentoring

Setting your mind on mentoring Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – It has been claimed that principal leadership accounts for about 20 per cent of the school’s impact on student achievement, second only to the impact of teachers. The last decade has brought increased accountability pressures on principals, along with demands to demonstrate instructional leadership that results in continuous improvement in student outcomes. In fact almost all studies about successful school improvement point to the need for strong, academically-focussed principal leadership. New principals, however, are often “thrown in at the deep end”. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Development and Learning in Organizations: An International Journal Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds their own impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – It has been claimed that principal leadership accounts for about 20 per cent of the school’s impact on student achievement, second only to the impact of teachers. The last decade has brought increased accountability pressures on principals, along with demands to demonstrate instructional leadership that results in continuous improvement in student outcomes. In fact almost all studies about successful school improvement point to the need for strong, academically-focussed principal leadership. New principals, however, are often “thrown in at the deep end”. Practical implications – The paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
