ABSTRACT

In this section, we recap the evidence as to the indispensability of emotional leadership in schools and the knowledge garnered from the innovative research project that undergirds this work. This is followed by an outline of the study’s contributions to the fields of psychology, organizational management, and, of course, educational administration. Last but not least, we expand on the book’s main conclusion whereby emotional leadership is a fixture of successful institutions of learning. In its absence, schools are hard-pressed to function and implement reforms.
