Summary

Hiring an administrator with those tangible elements listed in a job description does not ensure that the chosen individual will be an effective administrator. Too often the key element of "administrative presence" is missing. An "administratively present" leader is able to conceptualize within his system, interact with the human elements of the system, and actualize his concepts in such a way that the human elements understand and support the actualization. The important opposite of administrative presence is "administrative absenteeism." Three types of administrative absenteeism are commonly observed in educational systems. Physical absenteeism entails the physical absence of the leader from his assigned leadership role. Psychological absenteeism often involves a leader who adheres rigidly to an absolute set of beliefs, and is further manifested by a gap between what the leader believes and what his staff believes. Philosophical absenteeism manifests itself in deep-seated philosophical differences between the leader's belief system and the belief system of some or all of the other individuals composing the educational team.
