Question: As an experienced school teacher in Africa, respond to the following interview question: “How has the leadership style(s) experienced negatively impacted your school's quality?” (use a friendly tone and write a minimum of 300 words)
I have experienced different leadership styles during my teaching career and I have seen the positive and the negative impacts they can have on the quality of a school. The most common negative impact I have witnessed is that when the leadership has been too authoritarian, it has often caused the staff to feel powerless and demoralized, resulting in a decrease in quality of teaching and learning. When the leadership approach is too rigid or there is a lack of communication, teachers feel isolated and it becomes difficult for them to work together to meet the needs of their students. This can lead to a lack of motivation and enthusiasm within the school and a decrease in the quality of education being offered. Furthermore, when the leadership style is too controlling, it often stifles creativity and any innovative approaches that could be beneficial for the school. In addition, when the leadership style is too bureaucratic or rigid, it can often be to the detriment of the students’ learning experience. There can be a lack of flexibility in how instruction is delivered and it can be difficult to quickly adjust when there are changes in student needs or new developments in the curriculum. Furthermore, with too much emphasis being placed on compliance and regulations, teachers and students can feel overwhelmed and it can stifle the passion they have for learning. Ultimately, I believe that it is important for leaders to be able to walk the line between being authoritative and collaborative. Leaders should be able to lead with direction and purpose while still maintaining open communication with the staff to ensure that they can work together to ensure the best possible outcomes for their students.
