Educational leadership: key challenges and ethical tensions

Patrick Duignan

The author summarises the findings of a three-year study, undertaken by a team of researchers from the Australian Catholic University, on the ethical issues facing contemporary educational leaders. A challenge for educational leaders is to build cultures of capability where all organisational members have a sense that they are valued and that they contribute to the leadership of the organisation. The ultimate challenge for leaders is to develop their own and others’ capabilities so that their organisations can flourish in complex, uncertain, unpredictable and rapidly changing environments.
