School leaders communicating in complex organisations
Macklin, J. 2013. School leaders communicating in complex organisations. Research in Teacher Education. 3 (1), pp. 22-26.
In this paper I explore how communication is used within a Senior Leadership Team (SLT) in a London secondary school. Effective communication can impact upon the ability of the leadership team to be aware of developments both internally and externally. It is suggested that communication either includes others in a shared conversation (illocutionary) or downward and excludes participation (prelocutionary). This paper suggests an illocutionary approach is more effective for distributed leadership.
