Abstract

This article is written from the perspective of a practising headteacher in the context of the Leadership Programme for Serving Headteachers (LSPH), now renamed Head for the Future, and builds on an earlier treatment of the ideological background of LPSH and its construction of self in relation to approaches to educational leadership through personal growth. It examines the six leadership styles promoted by this programme (Coercive, Authoritative, Affiliative, Democratic, Pacesetting and Coaching) with a view to exploring their scope for spiritual intelligence in leadership development. In order to carry out this analysis the author deploys the theory of leadership archetypes originally devised by Christopher Hodgkinson in order to help gain a critical ethical perspective on the leadership styles and the notions of both emotional and spiritual intelligence.
