Summary

Hierarchical and decentralized organizational systems are both based on the assumption that power exists in a limited quantity to be divided up among those in the organization. Recent research indicates, to the contrary, that when managers allow their subordinates greater influence in the organization, not only does the job satisfaction and morale of the subordinates increase, but the subordinates are more responsive to the managers' wishes and requests. The manager thus gains control by giving control away. Tests of these theories in the public schools have demonstrated their application to principals and teachers. In addition, the satisfaction of teachers with their principals has been shown to relate directly to the principals' managerial style. (Author/PGD)
