Sustaining leadership capability via media technologies: Towards social network perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This study examines the effectiveness of using online social media technologies to advance collaborative coaching for novice and incumbent principals’ leadership capability. It is proposed that collaborative coaching methodologies coupled with social media technologies can enhance leadership skills for principals. The preliminary evidence demonstrated positive relationship between principals’ leadership capability advancement and usage of social media technologies as collaborative coaching medium. Results show that principals found it useful to share their difficulties and successful leadership knowledge and experiences via virtual community without constraints. Further, virtual community is efficient in cost and time and effective in reaching out to diverse individuals for knowledge and experience transfer. Theoretical and practical implications are discussed. Copyright © 2010 The Association for Advancement of Computing in Education.
