Mistakes Educational Leaders Make - The authors contend that most of the shortcomings and mistakes school administrators make fall into the category of poor human relations such as poor interpersonal-communication skills, a lack of vision, failure to lead or avoidance of conflict. Through a review of several articles and surveys, they identify the types of mistakes leaders tend to make and whether or not leadership training programs can be improved. They also offer ideas on how to avoid career-ending mistakes. (Clete Bulach, Winston Pickett and Diane Boothe, ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Digest 122, June 1998)...
