It is important to understand that academic qualifications do not necessarily equate to intellectual capability. It is much better to be able to impress others and give them confidence than to have an M.A. or M.Ed. Of course, if you can have both, it will be much better.
In general, probably the single most intelligent way of carrying out school leadership role is to make sure that decisions made always have a sound reason behind them.
Unintelligent leadership features decision-making that is based on assumption and prejudice and that is not well thought out – doing things because they have always been done, without considering alternatives.
If a colleague presents an idea or a proposal to you, and if it is well thought out and based on sound reasoning, no matter how much you dislike it you should always accept it if you cannot present a rational argument to reject it.
