Why trust the Head? : key strategies for transformational school leaders for building a purposeful relationship of trust
Browning, Paul D. (2013) Why trust the Head? : key strategies for transformational school leaders for building a purposeful relationship of trust. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.
Trust is widely recognised as one of the key qualities that a successful leader needs to bring about change within their organization. Browning’s study aimed to identify practices which a school leader can effectively use to inspire, build, and maintain trust between themselves, their staff and Chair of governing body.
The study was undertaken in two phases. Phase One was the identification of four highly trusted transformational leaders from the Australian independent schooling sector. Phase Two was a multicase study of the four school leaders.
The findings provide practical advice for school leaders wishing to have a positive impact on the outcomes of the students in their school.
