Introduction Can you imagine happy faces; can do attitudes, and leaders helping staff? School cultures are important to the success of a school but can be very difficult to establish and maintain. In order to establish a successful school culture the leader should understand the basic leadership theories and styles. The type of leadership style is important. Many schools in America can be classified in one of the following three categories: conventional, congenial, or collegial. These classifications can be decided by observing the way the school make decisions, react to stakeholders, the delivery of instruction, and the way the leader does their job. Throughout this essay the reader will understand the difference between the three styles. One school will be classified according to different criteria and determined whether the school and its leader is conventional, congenial or collegial. By the end of this essay the reader will understand the type of supervisory climate that exist on the campus of the chosen school and what category should be the norm in education.
What are the Three Categories? There are three categories that exist when discussing the style of a principal and a school. Each category can produce different outcomes. Conventional schools are easily recognized because little communication exists between staff and leadership. Teacher independence is evident. Conventional schools have no common goals only individual goals. These schools have no idea of the goals they are trying to accomplish as an entire school. At conventional schools blame is placed on the students and teachers feel it is unnecessary to change.…...

Supervision in Today's School

...SCHOOL SUPERVISION Article Summary This article is about how the methods of supervision vary depending upon the size and scope of the school district. It defines supervision as a system designed to monitor the quality of education and support teachers in an effort to provide the best possible education. The article mentions three methods of supervision: bureaucratic, democratic, and scientific. The bureaucratic model is a control oriented model that focuses on the bottom line and nothing else. The democratic model attempts to involve the teachers more in the decision making and also allows them to evaluate themselves as far as what is working or not. The scientific method is a more supportive one, were teachers are teachers are issued objective criteria and measured on the quality of the meeting that criteria. Supervision cannot be one size across the board; because, every school district has its own unique challenges and situations. Countries have tinkered with how to implement supervision for decades. Some countries like the Philippines, China and Sweden have dismantled their school supervision and later re- established it due to rapid expansion of education that led to lower quality. This made the policy makers of the world set the quality control in the schools as their top priority. Article Critique I agree with this article in regards to making supervision tailor made for the need of each school district. In America our educational system puts forth a lot of...

Supervision

...Supervision Altheria Stevens Delaney Walden University Supervision The job of a supervisor of a mental health professional counselor encompasses many roles and responsibilities. Many supervisors subscribe to different supervision models, however this paper focuses on the discrimination model and will explain how to apply each of the supervisory roles with the case of Michael, the supervisee in the case study. This paper will also incorporate a description and justification of a skills that is most relevant to the role. Lastly, I will explain the supervisor’s role and skill set as noted in the discrimination model of supervision. Applying and Explaining Supervisory Roles This is where you introduce the ideas of effective characteristics and behaviors. Be sure to support your points with the learning resources. Using multiple resources will support your points further. Supervisors of mental health professionals train, mentor, teach, encourage and challenge counselors who are new to the field (Young & Bashman, 2010). They are individuals that have been counseling for a while, who take time out to guide and assist people that are new to field (Young & Bashman, 2010). There are many roles and responsibility that a supervisor has and a number of theories that they may incorporate into their personal doctrine. The discrimination model is a theory that includes three skills (intervention, conceptualization and personalization) and roles (teacher, counselor, and......

Philosophy of Supervision

...Running Head: PERSONAL PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION Personal Philosophy of Supervision Andrea Byars EDA 551 Supervision and Instructional Leadership Grand Canyon University December 15, 2010 Personal Philosophy of Supervision Jean Jacques Rousseau once made the statement that, “Plants are shaped by cultivation and men by education. ... We are born weak, we need strength; we are born totally unprovided, we need aid; we are born stupid, we need judgment. Everything we do not have at our birth and which we need when we are grown is given us by education”. This statement makes it clear that it is imperative that students be taught how to think and speak in a proper manner so that they will be able to rationalize truths for themselves; thus meaning that administrators need to believe in, value, and be committed to the educability of all. Why then, is it important for an educational leader to have a personal philosophy regarding supervision? Establishing values and beliefs is essential to a person becoming an effective leader. Buddha once said, “Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense” (53 BC -483 BC). Glickman, Gordon, and Ross-Gordon, wrote “…a supervisor’s actions in working with teachers are based on supervisory beliefs, which in turn reflect a broader educational philosophy” (pg. 96). This means that the fundamental purpose of a leader’s supervisory......

...Supervision, Consultation, and Advocacy Lauren Young Survey of Research in Human Development for Professional Counselors Fall Quarter 2013 Abstract Inside the draft includes an evaluation of two supervision models for mental health. The benefits of a supervisor and a supervisee are narrated during the training process and once the training process is completed. The ethical importance of clinical supervision is defined and supported in the draft. Consultation and advocacy are both defined for the field of counseling as well as compared and contrasted for the mental health specialization. One can relate the role of advocacy and consultation as she becomes a professional counselor within mental health. Institutional and social barriers that might impede or hinder the access and equity of success for ones clients is also discussed. In addition, strategies are deliberated that one can utilize in their work to address multicultural issues and advocate for diverse populations. Lastly, one develops a hypothetical example of consultation for a couple. Clinical Supervision According to Milne and Oliver (2000), “clinical supervision is central to initial professional training and to continuing professional development, taking up a significant proportion of mental health professionals’ time” (p. 291). An integrated approach to supervision has been developed by combining the developmental model of Littrell, Lee-Borden, and Lorenz (1979) and Bernard's (1979, 1997)......

Supervision

...For a company to be successful, supervision is a vital part of a workplace. Management needs to ensure that supervision (their supervisors) is competent, knowledgeable, skilled, proficient, and fit to be supervisors. Employees must have proper instruction and training to guarantee that they are doing their jobs correctly. Supervision remains necessary for continuing skill and experience among associates. Poor supervision leads to problems and confiscates an essential part of the employee support process which in turn eliminates the opportunity for learning and reference. Also with poor supervision, employees are more likely to feel that their work is valued by the company. In this scenario at the XYZ Company, this is an example of poor supervision. The supervisor in charge of this particular section did not communicate that a new program was being implemented throughout the company. This supervisor is not present enough which caused the employees to react with resentment and displeasure in their work. Overview of the Organization and Case Study XYZ is an insurance company that provides car insurance to millions of people. The company is well known for its outstanding customer service. The situation is that a lack of communication from a particular supervisor in regards to the implementation of an important program is affecting the morale of the section and will affect the customer service that the company is well known for. The company received a new program......

School Bullying: a Dangerous Norm

...School Bullying: A Dangerous Norm “Because he was short.” This is the response the media received when Jon Carmichael’s friends were asked why he was bullied to the point of taking his own life. In 2010, Carmichael hung himself in his family’s barn after incessant verbal and physical abuse. Besides being the target of homosexual slurs, he was thrown into trashcans on a weekly basis and held upside down over a toilet in the school’s bathroom while his head was flushed over and over. There is now a $20 million federal lawsuit against the school for negligence and rightfully so, because the most appalling part of this whole tragedy is the fact that Carmichael was only 13 years old. The lawsuit claims that several members of the school’s faculty witnessed the bullying and did not report it. It also states that an unknown staff member even filmed one incident and posted the video on YouTube (Kuo & Cooper, 2011). Unfortunately cases like this one are occurring far too frequently in our society, and the ages of these victims who commit suicide are dropping. Carmichael’s tragic ending is just one horrific example of what can happen when school officials choose to look the other way after witnessing bullying. The purpose of this proposal is to convince readers that school administrators need to actively identify and attend to the bully’s potential psychological issues, instead of focusing on the victim’s behavior. When faculty members ignore confrontations between students,......

School Supervision

...School Supervision and Administration Situation: The Non Existing School Staff traditionally organizes a welcoming meeting for the new teachers. After they have been tested and accepted as part of the School Staff, they are to get in contact with the views and perspective that represents the soul of the School and the community. The administration and supervision members, all together talk about the values, the vision and the mission they stand for as an institution. After the meeting one of the new teachers, Mr. Smith approaches to the Human Resources Director and tells him: - Mr. Smith: I am really nervous. I do not know if I am going to be capable of succeeding and meeting all the needs of my students. I think I would be better for me to quit it now. - Mrs. Purera (Principal): Sorry to interrupt, but I couldn´t help to listen what you said. I want to say something to you that might help you clear your mind and give you strengths to stay. - Mr. Smith: What is that you have to tell me that can change my mind? -Mrs. Purera: As part of a eclectic and open to diversity Institution, you and you colleagues must have a purpose that guides you and goals to achieve. You need to be aware of what is within yourselves to give, in order to help others and to inspire others. You have been selected as part of this staff because we can see a great potential in all of you. It does not matter if you are novice teachers, what is really relevant is your willingness to serve and do......

...employees soon adopt the packaging crew’s informal schedule when assigned to that department. Leadership is required to ensure both managerial authority and employee obedience. (Clegg et al. 2011, P453) Leaders should make followers’ self-interest apparent, and this interest should be service to authority. Independent craftsmen producing directly difficult for the market offer no scope for supervision, whereas slave labour is obviously difficult to mobilize without supervision. (Organisation Studies 2001, P158). Leaders created moral codes for subordinates to live by; subordinates needed tutelage in strong moral values, which it was management’s duty to provide. (Harvey 1997, P354). Moreover, with employees earning one-and-half or two times their regular pay on overtime, Treetop’s cost competitiveness suffers. Moreover for lack of time tasks were often paid at the end of the month and not each fortnight, and this delay made it difficult to keep us sustained supervision of the production and individuals. (Zeitlin et al. 2002) Overall, without a good supervisor, employees would be lack of supervision so that decline their productivity, a company have too much stockpile while the company cannot produce enough packages, so as to make the company run down. On the other hand, it causes lots of hidden troubles, Unable to provide products that meet customer expectations, leading to customers to choose other companies, long termly affect the productivity and the reputation of the......

Norms

...Going against the Norms Have you ever seen a six foot four inch man get into the driver side of a small vehicle? Or have you checked out a woman with amazing, toned hour glass body and thought to yourself that you look happier than her, so it does not matter what you look like? These situations and thoughts do not come and go often because that is not how we typically think. According to the new 2016 Super Bowl commercials, the two commercials that caught my attention of going against these society norms was the Mini USA campaign defying label’s, as well as the Axe Menswear deodorant during the commercial breaks. Both of these showed in different perspectives of how we could be happy without worrying about our self-image and not worry about what others think. The Mini USA has been promoting the campaign “defying labels” since the 1950’s. When they first created the Classic Mini Coopers; cooperate owner, Sir Alec- designed the cars by flipping the engine sideways and pushing the wheels outwards to create more room in the cockpit. This creative design gave its own unique spontaneity and defied the basic norms of what a car should look like. Majority of the time, anyone who had seen a mini cooper or is discussed amongst population often label the car as “too feminine”. However, there are celebrities who were used into the commercials. The celebrities were Serena Williams, Abby Wambach, Randy Johnson, Tony Hawk, Harvey Keitel, T-Pain. They all had a testimony to share about...

Supervision

...Theory Y is the assumption that most employees enjoy work, seek responsibility and can self direct. I believe each individual Supervisor’s style is based on their belief about what inspires members of their team. A good supervisor knows the type of team they are working with and should be able to adapt their management style all while accomplishing departmental/overall company goals. You can change your approach accordingly by understanding how your belief of what inspires your team and by doing this you manage more effectively. In my opinion an Autocratic Supervisor would be managing Theory X people. This is because they would use pressure to get the work done or even threaten disciplinary action to force favorable results. General Supervision within a Theory Y workgroup is more favorable because the team wants to get the job done, enjoys doing it and accepts responsibility for getting it done. Theory Y would be inappropriate for all supervisors because as discussed, when it comes to people, all work ethic is not the same. For Example, In my opinion, a Theory Y supervisor would not be appropriate in a situation after a crisis or disaster where people are looking for firm direction to get a job done. They don’t want self-direction or the ability to make decisions on their own they want to be lead and they want to be pressured to make sure they are getting the job done correctly because the outcome is vital. Another example of why Theory Y would not be suitable is when......
