Out of Women's Experience

Creating Relational Leadership
This innovative book proposes a new model for comprehensive and effective leadership, drawn from the personal experiences and accounts of female educational leaders. The authors demonstrate how women conceptualize and practice their educational leadership roles in ways that differ significantly from most of their male counterparts. In redefining these differences as 'relational leadership', Regan and Brooks suggest that the attributes and skills that women bring to leadership are accessible and valuable to female and male school leaders alike.

Description

Description

"Well designed and written . . . a distinct contribution to the field of leadership. The concepts, issues, processes, and attributes are enhanced by a very creative use of vignettes, case studies, and stories." John W. Brubacher, Professor Emeritus University of Connecticut "The authors' articulation of the feminine strand of ├Ždouble helix leadership' through rich stories of women's leadership experiences is both moving and telling. This is a contribution that promises to transform both the leading of schools and the preparation of those who will lead them." Carol S. Witherell, Associate Professor Lewis & Clark College Portland, Oregon Regan and Brooks develop six key ideas in this unique study of educational leadership drawn from the experience of women. They examine the special qualities that women bring to leaderships roles and show how these attitudes, characteristics, and techniques can be used to used to improve the practice and teaching of educational leadership for men and women. The themes are illustrated throughout by insightful case studies of women leaders. Special emphasis is placed on five important attributes of effective leadership displayed in the participants of the authors' study: caring, vision, collaboration, courage, and intuition. Using the double helix as a metaphor, the authors identify and explore the essence of leadership grounded in women's experience and develop the concept of "relational leadership." This new model incorporates and interweaves both traditional and relational leadership practices to create a more comprehensive, responsive repertory of skills for everyone. Out of Women's Experience is an intriguing exploration of leadership that holds the promise of initiating significant and positive change in our schools.
