Defining effective leadership has been done by assembling lists of dispositions and traits that are found among individuals that encompass what a good leader should be. But to be that effective leader, the awareness of the characteristics is not enough. Instead, these idiosyncrasies should be at the core belief system of a leader. If these characteristics become instinctual, then they are represented in an effective leader's actions and they are accessible as a guiding force in times that are the most challenging.
This paper will explain what I believe to be the essential components that encompass my core beliefs I accredit to effective leadership. These elements are what drive the structure of my leadership principles and will affect the decisions I make as a school leader.
