III. Knowing myself as a leader

In 1972, the United States Senate drew this conclusion:

"In many ways the school principal is the most important and influential individual in any school. It is the principal's leadership that sets the tone of the school, the climate for learning, the level of professionalism and morale of teachers and the degree of concern for what students may or may not become….If a school is a vibrant, innovative, child-centered place; if it has a reputation for excellence in teaching; if students are performing to the best of their ability, one can almost always point to the principal's leadership as the key to success."
