School systems face unprecedented local, state, and federal accountability for school performance and student achievement. School systems and schools themselves have begun to function like business organizations with management complexities and the requirement of bottom line results. School leadership is a critical component to good performance and student achievement. There is concern over whether or not school leaders have the proper management skills and leadership styles and approaches necessary to ensure effective operational performance of schools. Schools have become like business organizations and may benefit from leadership styles proven to enhance performance in business organizations and school settings. Education leaders may benefit from training and development in transformational leadership styles proven to enhance performance in business organizations and educational settings.
