Global core leadership competencies: A response to ‘institutional culture’ and (in)-competence in higher education

Anthony Normore, Jeffrey Scott Brooks, Sara Silva

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (Book)Researchpeer-review


Problems of competence grow out of institutional culture and from the way these institutions shape the profession and its members. Towards that end, this chapter is organized around three general considerations. First, we discuss some general issues about leader quality. Second, the present shape of the leadership corps in higher education will be discussed. Finally, we introduce several 21st Century leadership core competencies (Brooks & Normore, 2009) for consideration to hiring personnel so they do not repeatedly select and promote unqualified leaders who stifle creativity and encourage conformity.
