Innovative leadership


Innovative leadership refers to any leadership approach that departs from traditional heirarchical structures. This includes both formal structures and informal leadership styles. For example, a school may have a principal with a collaborative leadership style that introduces innovative leadership practices, or a school may have innovative leadership structures and practices such as a distributed leadership model.
