Abstract

To be an effective leader, one needs to have many characteristics. She needs to be a leader of reflection, change, learning and service. When a principal reflects, she will be a better principal. She will know how to make better decisions. A leader that makes changes is an effective leader. With reflection, a principal can realize what needs to be changed to help students in her school. A principal needs to be constantly learning and encouraging her teachers to continue their learning. When principals and teachers continue learning, they can be better educators. Finally, principals need to be service oriented. When a student is well rounded in all aspects of life, including service learning in the community, they become a better educator. An effective leader encompasses all these qualities and effectively implements them.
