ETL 504 Module 1 Post 2

Post 2: We have a range of leadership styles in our school ranging from instructional to transactional. Some admin team members are keen to keep the staff onside and negotiate reasonable outcomes.
The leadership styles quiz claims the following about my leadership style:
Your style of leadership is democratic, a.k.a. participative. It is considered as one of the most effective leadership styles in ideal situations. As the name suggests, democratic leaders consider the suggestions and opinions of group members and involve group members in the decision-making process. But they make sure that the final decision is taken by them while being in sync with the majority.

It is one of the ideal leadership styles in an education system.

The 4 transactional elements outlined in Marzano individual consideration, intellectual stimulation, inspirational motivation and idealised influence. These are definitely areas I could focus on developing.
