Abstract

Globalization has become a major feature in all aspects of life and more so in leadership systems. However, going global may imply ignoring important aspects of the local setting which are enshrined in cultural and ideological attributes. This is why it is important for leaders to have one eye on the global and another on the local aspects. This kind of leadership is dubbed glocal leadership, and it rendered this paper an urgent necessity. Nevertheless, educational institutions are also part of this global movement and have to live up to the global challenges while upholding the local dimensions in order to bring out a holistic product that fits within the local setting while equipped with a global understanding. This paper argues that this is only possible through a leadership system which obtains within both the local and global realms and thus it dissects the place of glocal leadership in educational institutions. The paper also expounds on how educational leaders can achieve global targets without sidelining key local tendencies.
