EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP, EMULATE IT!
JAY S. GUINTU
The collaboration between administrators and instructors is one of the most significant features of high-performing schools. As a manager, the school leader plays a vital role in this. Managerial qualities are critical in determining who will lead a school or other organizations. It is defined as the capacity to plan, manage, and direct the activities of an educational enterprise for the educational system. Managerial abilities, knowledge, and experience are required to carry out management tasks and achieve corporate objectives and goals. It creates the circumstances and expectations for excellent instruction and develops a learning culture for educators and students. For decades, educational leaders worldwide have worked to improve school performance. As a result, the principal effect of this policy shift on school leaders has been significant pressure to show the value of their work to this development. A good choice made by an organization can help its leaders and members. As a result, decision-making is central to management to select the best option for attaining a goal. School leaders play an essential role in assisting the school by expressing a shared goal of fostering distributed leadership within a collaborative school atmosphere. Principals demonstrate leadership through tools and processes; situational decision-making necessitates their choices. According to Republic Act No. 9155, also known as the Governance of Basic Education Act of 2001, Chapter I Section 7, each public school or cluster of schools in the Philippines is required to have a school head who is expected to form a team with school teachers and learning facilitators to deliver quality educational programs, projects, and services, as well as a core of non-teaching staff who handles the school's administrative, fiscal, and auxiliary services. One's leadership abilities would be utilized to the greatest extent feasible. Achieving high-quality learning outcomes under the Act also allows school administrators to guide teachers and students. School heads must also have authority, responsibility, and accountability in managing all school affairs by RA 9155's national educational policies, programs, and standards. As a result, whether the school succeeds or fails is determined by the quality of its leader. Any school is fortunate to have the finest of the best leadership. Be a willing mentee if you know one! To be one, you should learn and cherish every experience, good or bad.
