Multidimensional Perceptual Leadership Model: Implications for Education and School Leadership, Old Officials, New Officials and New Global Challenges
In our evolving and changing world, leadership perception processes and leadership definitions emerge in different forms. Work on leadership began in the first half of the twentieth century and continued to change and develop by gaining momentum during subsequent periods. Nevertheless, leadership remains elusive both as a concept and a practice leading to untold inefficiency in many settings. This is premised on the assumption that leadership is largely multidimensional and thus, considering it from any other perspective, renders it inconclusive. Some studies have been conducted to address the multidimensional nature of leadership. The aim of this paper, therefore, was to examine the multidimensional perceptual leadership model developed by Erçetin and Düzer in 2008 in terms of educational management whilst adding the leadership types published by Erçetin, Açıkalın and Bülbül in 2013. This was done in light of new challenges engulfing education as well as the call for a reconceptualization of school leadership.
