Schools are required to respond to numerous theories and strategies that emerge, almost on a daily basis, to influence the way education is carried out. Effective school administration is possible within the complex society that our school system is expected to serve. To do this, it is up to school administrators to find the correct path. Not only must they find the right path but they must also be able to convince others to follow them down this path which is quite often the one less travelled . What leadership characteristics exhibited by administrators are most likely to inspire teachers to seek the path to realizing the improvements necessary to respond to the pressures of society? Knowing these characteristics may go a long way toward helping all schools provide the very best education to all students.
