Generative Governance and Effective School Leadership

Emory Latta discusses the importance of effective school leadership.

Most schools have made the transition to governance in providing leadership and direction. Yet, even in schools that have made this transition, many continue to struggle to become strategically oriented and almost none advance to the level of vision-casting and mission-driven decision-making that Chait, Thomas and Taylor call “generative governance”. The purpose of this presentation is to share how Providence Christian School in Dothan, Alabama, has begun to utilize a tri-modal model for fiduciary oversight, strategic planning and generative governance that makes it possible to connect the school’s vision with its decisions and make it more effective and dynamic.
