Bolman and Gallow (2011) discuss the issue of challenging personnel and managing conflict (pp. 129-188). Bradberry and Greaves (2009) asserts that “We enter the workforce knowing how to read, write, and report on bodies of knowledge, but too often, we lack the skills to manage your emotions in the heat of the challenging problems that we face. Good decisions require far more than factual knowledge. They are made using self-knowledge and emotional mastery when they’re needed most” (p. 14). Emotional intelligence is one example of a leadership principle that a leader in higher education must demonstrate as they establish clear boundaries to ensure that unethical or dangerous behavior does not happen.
In this discussion, you will apply additional leadership principles to leading faculty and staff in the higher education environment.
Please create a hypothetical situation in which you demonstrate how a leader would apply a specific leadership principle to a higher education practice. How does this principle impact institutional initiatives? How does this principle apply to leading change?
