Doctoral Project Abstract

On His Last Day: Reflections on Leadership, Life, and Values

Rocky Wallace
Regent University

This project is written as a manuscript, and looks inside the heart to heart conversations of a retiring principal and the young teacher who replaces him. The two decide to meet at school twice a month for a year in a mentoring relationship, and what results is a servant leadeship model that transforms their school. As the various issues of the school year are addressed, the core values of  strategic leadership that are the bedrock of the Regent DSL program surface. Step by step, the young principal learns to let go of fear and paradigms that have been preventing the school from effective change. As she plunges into the world of vision, positive turbulance, and the boundaryless organization, she realizes that she is empowering and equipping her school community to embrace the potential of what is possible when children are truly put first
