The Dynamic Nature of Emotions in Educational Leadership: Lessons from the Career Stories of Israeli Late-Career Principals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

In light of the emergent research on emotions of educational leadership, I would like to display in this chapter a developmental view of emotions in school leadership through life stories of late-career Israeli principals who have been interviewed in-depth about their professional identity and career experiences during their career cycle. From their accounts we gain much knowledge about the dynamic aspects of origins, qualities and effects of emotions in educational leadership. Briefly, it is apparent that school principal’s emotional understanding, empathy, trust and emotionality develop throughout the years in post to a point in which emotions play a key role in lives and career of the late-career principals.
