  • Stavroula Siatira


This article focuses on exploring the characteristics of leadership at schools and the policy of a School Principal that can drive teachers to be effective. It focuses most on recording what is important for school leadership and in what way and with what energies and behaviours a School Principal could affect teaching staff in their daily work. A person with values, vision and strategy seems to be the right person in the right place. Also, key factor at schools is the way that a School Principal thinks and acts, with stability, determination, participatory approach and great professionalism. The research demonstrates that especially the incentive policy of a School Principal has a strong motivating influence on the teachers’ daily work. We have to realize that successful school leadership can contribute to the creation of the necessary conditions, which could improve the teaching staff and their efficacy for better performance and the success of school, their workplace.
