Leadership in school organisations: management by values

João Ribeiro Trigo Jorge Adelino Costa About the authors

Leadership is one of the most common themes in the study of organisations in general, although this prevalence has not reached the same importance in educational organisations, particularly in some geographical contexts. Even though we assume in this article that schools have got some specificities in relation to other organizations, we also recognize that the studies in the education field cannot remain immune to the contributions of other areas. Due to this reason we refer here to the model of Management by Values as a proposal that by breaking away from the more technical-instrumental branches of traditional theories of management, could contribute to a shared reflection with the leadership of educational organisations, specially taking into account the conceptualisation of leadership as a dialogue on values.
