Summary

Visionary leadership has emerged as a significant characteristic of high performing school administrators. Vision provides a sense of direction for the school and facilitates accomplishment. Administrators must move from authoritarian and managerial modes of operation to proactive leadership, and maintain a focus on the vision through turmoil and change. In developing a personal vision, one needs to ask questions about one's strengths and weaknesses as a leader and write the answers in a vision statement. In much the same manner, one can develop this into an organizational vision, and then identify knowledge of the organization and involve others to facilitate the implementation of the vision. The final component of vision is future vision which often uses metaphorical statements, symbols, or personal models. Administrators should allocate funding, materials, and time to sustain the vision, and apply various administrative strategies to pursue the vision. The changes in rural education demands visionary leadership. This paper contains 20 references. (GGH)
