Outstanding School Administrators: Their Keys to Success

By Frederick C. Wendel; Fred A. Hoke et al. | Go to book overview

SUMMARY

Communication is both a means to build organizational relationships and a function of organizational relationships. Successful administrators will find and use means of communication to build close relationships with others and to capitalize upon those relationships by extending communication patterns, increasing the depth of understanding with others, and sharpening their means of oral and written communication. Administrators who are effective communicators value the ideas of and feedback from others and also seek to improve their listening skills.
