The Facets of Principal’s Visionary Leadership and Measurement Tool Creation
At present, most of studies related to principal’s visionary leadership develop their arguments with qualitative analysis while evidence-based research is still scarce. This study constructs facets of principal’s visionary leadership and makes related question items. Taking elementary school teachers in Taiwan as the research object, it adopts a questionnaire survey to explore the degree of school teachers’ perception of the visionary leadership of their principals. A total of 226 valid questionnaires are collected and analyzed with SPSS statistical software. The results of the study construct three facets: formation of vision, practice of vision, and feedback on vision, including 20 questions in total. The cumulative explained variation is 73.227%, the α reliability coefficients of the three facets are all higher than 0.7, and the scale has good validity and reliability. The research results advance the arguments of the process and facets of principal’s visionary leadership for reference in subsequent studies.
