Abstract

The drive of this discourse was to analyse school leadership ontogenesis in Namibia a case of three Senior Primary School. The deficiency of efficacious leadership in school configurations has been a venerable predicament and has prevailed since the state attained political autonomy in 1990. The rapid preponderance of high schools across the state since independence exacerbated the predicament with a plethora of these schools despite diverse attempts to titivate the quality of education delivery in schools. It should be stressed that the interpretivist theoretical perspective was adopted in this study. This viewpoint implies that the emphasis is on crafting communicated concepts and is an approach that purposefully tries to unpack the reality of the situation within a specific contextual environment. The researcher argues that training of leadership results in effective performance. The findings of this research show that fifty-three per cent of the school leaders were not trained on the leadership enhancement programme, while forty-seven per cent of the school leaders were trained. It is recommended that most of the school leaders be trained in the leadership development. The state needs to follow best practises in leadership ontogenesis such as Singapore, United Kingdom, New Zealand, Austria school leadership furnishes a significant gathering of plethoric models for present school leadership ethos. Gleaning from leadership ontogenesis from the top ten rated executive programs such as MIT, Harvard, UCT, Stellenbosch, Oxford and others is very vital for leadership ontogenesis

Chapter One: Introduction

1.1 Introduction

This chapter explores the orientation of the Study, outlining the conundrums , research parameters, as well as the motivation of the study. The chapter elucidates the limitations and delimitations of research dealt with in conducting the research.

1.2 Background Of The Study

In many western states, there had been a recurrent interest in the power of leadership to engender and sustain school development. The Partners in Teacher Leadership Initiative, which encapsulates the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards with other corporates worldwide are called upon to furnish information regarding teacher leadership policies and to ensure quality teachers. They are also responsible for the professional ontogenesis of teachers (Teresa, Army, & Michael, 2019).

According to Tony, Les, & Middlewood, (2019) United states have federal policies that embrace the secondary educational enactment of 1965, which shapes educational policy and practice in the classroom and aims to enhance educational equity for students from low-income families. Due to the requisites of the millennial generation, which has become more multifarious in the effort to surge efficacious schools a vital scrutiny should be done on leadership physiognomies through Educational policies (Hallinger, 2003).

Moreover, the National Education enactment 2025 in Malaysia was propounded to moot an education frame of reference through the elevated configuration of the education revolution process. Ever since, the Ministry of Education has single-minded on distributive leadership ethos among school leaders towards upsurging leadership efficaciousness and quality as the original plan towards the victory of Malaysian Education Plan (Muhyiddin, 2015).

Furthermore, in Nigeria, the legislature of Education was propounded of the National syllabus symposium held in Lagos (Bush, 2007). Leadership professional ontogenesis enactment of teachers was crafted on National Education discourse. Since independence in 1990, Namibia has experienced some profound policy transformation towards granting access to education to everybody. This policy is in tandem with conventional educational leadership literature which construes leadership as a shared endeavour which embraces the leadership of teachers in schools. The policy hint at headmaster who cannot govern and administer the school alone but should embrace teachers and other stakeholders in leadership activities (Amukugo, 2019). The policies make provision for teachers to play leadership roles in Namibian schools. Eyelyehongo primary school was state-owned established by Mr. Sam Nangolo in January 1995. The school commenced with one teacher; in 1997 they were offering grade 1-4. The school now has 286 leaners headed by the same headmaster. Peter Nanyemba primary school was propounded in 2004 and named after the SWAPO liberation hero Peter Nanyemba who died in 1983. The schools offer grade 1-7 and presently has 176 learners. Omagano primary school is a state-owned school which was propounded in 1995 and commenced with 58 learners offering grade 1-4. The state-owned primary school has grown to 245 learners and presently offers grade 1-7. This discourse is crafted to center on enhancement of leaders in practice on the three primary schools. ‘The Work of the School Board’ (1999, p. 4) which includes all the above stakeholders, highlights that a “school board is the highest governing body of the school at the local school level”.

1.3 Statement Of The Problem

Creative developed leaders are needed who possess the capability to think out of the traditional dimension to improve a country’s educational standards (Namira & Rodriques, 2018). The School leadership workshop organised by Capricorn Company in Namibia not targeting Oshana region’s purpose was to create an ecosystem for the archetypical body in the diverse sectors to appreciate themselves and to acquaint themselves with one another, manage dysfunctions, improve communication, manage cambietics and foster leadership progression dexterities (Machonga, 2018).

It should be noted that , leadership signature within the didactic and school’s perspective is novel and conceptually poles apart. Most opinion leaders in Namibia are finding it strenuous to come to terms as like chalk and cheese the concept of leadership signature and ontogenesis. Thurlow, Bush and Coleman (2018) have suggested that it is vital to appreciate the crisis in schools about legitimacy, deficiency of leadership progression, deficiency of administration, and the breakdown of teaching and learning. The deficiency of efficacious mentors in school configurations has been a long-standing deprivation and has prevailed since the state gained political autonomy in 1990 (Magnan, 2018). The rapid preponderance of schools across state since independence shuddered the predicament with lack of quality on plethoric schools despite innumerable attempts to enhance the delivery of excellent education in schools. It gives the aura that issues regarding leadership in these schools remain a significant predicament (Thurlow, Bush, & Coleman, 2018).

This discourse fills the gap in school leadership in Namibia for three schools in Oshana region. As articulated above, these matters emanate from a context in which very pocket-sized research has been executed, and an apparent hypothesis that surveyed located in the foreign ethos can be applied in any other state such as Namibia without any predicament . Another rationale for undertaking this survey is the question of whether developing states such as Namibia would have the assets to execute such knowledge efficaciously. It is, therefore, the rationale of this discourse to analyse the school leadership ontogenesis in Namibia concentrating in three senior primary schools.

1.4 Objectives Of The Study

The performance of teachers is invariably influenced by the type of leadership practices in the school under consideration. Therefore, the general objective of the study is to analyse school leadership ontogenesis in Namibia a case of three Senior Primary School. The following are some of the exclusive objectives to be unpacked in the course of this discourse .

1. To find out if leaders subscribe to the call for a cambietics in leadership in schools.
2. To determine whether the gender of the heads disposes leadership in any way.
3. To find out factors that dispose leadership and teacher performance in the schools,
4. To determine what style of leadership is being implemented in the primary schools

1.5 Research Questions

The main research question of the discourse is; How is school leadership ontogenesis conducted for the three primary School in Oshana region?

The sub research questions will be:

1. Do heads or leaders subscribe to the call for a change in leadership in schools?
2. Does the gender of the heads influences leadership in any way?
3. What are the factors that influence leadership and teacher performance in schools?
4. What are leadership styles being implemented in the three primary schools?

1.6 Hypothesis Testing

A statistical hypothesis is an affirmation or conjecture regarding one or more populace. A quantitative hypothesis is a fundamental and crucial genre of mathematics statistics (Tariff, 2018). To substantiate that a hypothesis is correct, or false, with absolute inevitability, we would need absolute knowledge. The classical theory on testing hypothesis is incumbent upon a significant sample such as Pearson test and Fisher like hood ratio test. Granger Causality, correlation tests and ANOVA tests. Its decision is based on the p-value. The p-value is the bottommost ebb of worth at which the observed significance of a test statistic is cherished (Tao & Shi, 2018) Variables below 0.05 will not be accepted, but those more than 0.05 will be accepted. This research will be driven by three hypotheses, which are :

Hypothesis 1

Ho There is a correlation between leadership ontogenesis and leadership performance HA, There is no correlation between leadership ontogenesis and leadership performance.

- Hypothesis 2

Ho: There is a correlation between performance agreement and performance

HA: There is no correlation between performance agreement and performance

Hypothesis 3

Ho: There is a correlation between performance agreement and leadership ontogenesis

Ha: There is no correlation between performance agreement and leadership development.

1.7 Significance Of The Study

The aftermath of this discourse has the latent to furnish curriculum planners and developers sector of the Namibian state under the Ministry of Education in conveying policies and methodologies for efficacious leadership and management of schools throughout the state. This will also furnish data to all fascinated groups who may find it very pertinent in their genre of work. This discourse will contribute to the body of human capital in the genre of Education and development.

The consequence of the discourse will aid school management, teachers and fundis among others to generate efficacious teaching-didactic discourse and pedagogies that will make instruction and erudition at the Senior Primary Schools portfolio more appealing and intriguing. Also, the rubric will be valuable to academia in their further contribution to the progression of literature on education.

Furthermore, the result of the discourse will be of assistance for local, as well as national authorities, to furnish the much-desirable advocacy for their school heads in their leadership roles aimed at solving vital predicament correlated to education. Ultimately, the study aims at advocating the need for a paradigm shift in the whole leadership configuration in our schools to aid progression and open the schools to cyber-space village.

1.8 Scope Of The Study

The scope of the study includes methods and procedures outlined for this research to achieve set objectives and answer the research questions accordingly. The study is limited to only schools in the Senior Primary Schools in Oshana region.

1.9 Limitation Of The Study

Pertaining to the latitude articulated above, the research is destined to have certain predicament as pinpointed by the researcher. The researcher gives leave to enter that the findings of the research would have been boosted should it encapsulates other schools in other Clusters: this would have also aided juxtaposition of private senior school leadership with those of the state. Another collocation would have been to juxtapose rural schools with urban schools. The findings of this research cannot, therefore, be generic for the primary schools in all the regions of the state.

1.10 Organisation Of The Study

This discourse is presented in five compartments: Chapter one is the overview of the conundrum which enunciates; the orientation of the discourse, articulation of the conundrum, the objectives of the rubric, significance of the discourse, scope or delimitation of the discourse, the limitations of the rubric and organisation of the enquiry. Chapter two underscores the pertinent works of school of thoughts on the subject matter, while research design and methodology are enunciated in chapter three. In section four, the data collected are expounded with profound and prolific analysis, as well as discussion of findings. Chapter five highlights the main findings verbalizing conclusions and recommendations.

1.11 Conclusion

In a nutshell, Namibia has experienced some profound transformation Toward Education for All - A Ontogenesis Brief for Education, Culture and Training. This policy is in tandem with conventional educational leadership literature which construes leadership as a shared endeavour which encapsulates the leadership of teachers in schools. Most school leaders in Namibia are finding it multifarious to come to terms with these diverse perspectives of leadership. The crisis in schools as about legitimacy, deficiency of leadership development, deficiency of management, and the flop of teaching and learning. The main objective of the rubric is to analyse leadership ontogenesis in Namibia a case of Senior Primary School. The researcher admits that the findings of the research would have been enhanced should it include other schools in other Clusters: this would have also aided comparison of private senior school leadership with those of the government.

Chapter 2: Literature Review

2.1 Introduction

This section covers the delineation of leadership ontogenesis , unpacks different theories of leadership development, school leadership development. It makes a critical review of dynamic school of thought of leadership development, Social change tenets of leadership ontogenesis and holistic tenets of leadership development. It also unravels leadership styles and furnishes a theoretical framework. This discourse further unfolds changes in leadership, gender influence in leadership, determinants impelling leadership and performance. The researcher premised on the fact that consultative transactional leadership is the most efficacious and useful transactional leadership styles.

2.2 Delineation of leadership Ontogenesis

Leadership progression is the enlargement of a person’s capability to be efficacious in leadership physiognomies and processes (Till, Mc Kimm, & Swanzick, 2019). Lokkesmore (2019) delineates leadership ontogenesis as “an exertion (hopefully, planned in physiognomy ) that augments the learner’s capability to lead people. In layman, language leading is charting direction and guiding others to follow that direction. Leadership ontogenesis is a recurrent process rather than intermittent. It is not just a unitary or single event. Till McKimm & Swanzick (2019) conclude that leadership ontogenesis is by no means in definition and custom uniform. It was noted that there is no one right path, direction, or timeline to the process of leadership development. Leader’s intrinsic or specific means of leadership ontogenesis is, in large part, unique and therefore obscure. The methods of leadership ontogenesis are also plethoric. Collet and Menlo (2015) linger by saying the schools "need leaders who can create an important transmogrification in the learning philosophies of schools and of the teaching profession itself". Leadership is indispensable for promoting student achievement and creating a vision of success for the total educational program (Burns, 2012). An original and annotation link exists between leadership and team performance, Collet and Menlo (2015) posit, who also asserted that leadership is about serving and commences on the inside and moves externally to serve others. The researcher argues that such leadership has the interest of others in mind, nurtures growth and ontogenesis in others, is enthusiastic to listen, and thinks less about self while held accountable for performance.

Leadership embraces "learning together and erecting meaning and knowledge jointly and synergistic to replicate on and make kinesthesia of work in the light of shared placebos and create actions that grow out of these new identifications (Burns, 2012)". The task of running a multifaceted operation is running a task with two amplitudes. One scope, an approval of bustle related to change, is leadership. The other magnitude surrounding productive efforts to manage in which people can work adequately is management (Hughes & Wearing, 2013). Hughes initiates the ABC rule (Accelerator, Brake and Cruise control) and further expounds that the excellent administrator reads the ambience correctly and knows how much pressure to apply, when to apply it and why. In running multifaceted organisations, the person in charge must attend to both leadership tasks and management activities (Hughes, 2013).

2.2.1 The role of CEO Leadership

The predictors from CEO administration is that of leading by inculcating hope in followers. Bolman and Deal (2008), middle managers and workers often say their enterprise would thrive if senior administration demonstrates “real leadership”. Kotter (1988) also appreciates administration as being predominantly about essential nuts and bolts: planning, organising, and controlling. The role of CEO administration demands the capability to see new possibilities and to moot new opportunities which empower employees to discover substitutes when options seem severely constrained and help them find hope and faith amid fear and despair.

CEO receive disbursement in diverse forms; encapsulating basic salaries, annual bonuses, long-term incentives, accomplishment shares (i.e., restricted stock with performance-based vesting), stock options, retirement benefits, and perquisites ranging from health benefits to club memberships and sometimes personal use of the corporate jet and or car. CEO routinely receive lump-sum amounts at various points in time (Murphy, 2013).

However, an average employee in the organised sector is entitled to several benefits both pecuniary as well as non-pecuniary (Chavana, 2018). A typical disbursement of an employee includes:

- Basic stipends
- Incentives (an annual bonus tied to financial accomplishment or market performance)
- Fringe benefits
- Non-monetary benefits

Moreover, to the above, CEOs also contribute to “broad-based” staff benefit plans and receive unique benefits, including life insurance and supplemental CEO retirement plans (SERPs) (Murphy, 1999). Most of the CEO negotiate their contract that usually ranges from five years with specified minimum basic salaries, target bonus payments (with or without guarantees), and may also include severance arrangements in the event of separation or change in corporate control (Murphy, 1999).

2.2.2 Leadership Signature

Leadership signature is about who you are ,you as a leader that every leader is unique who does not need to be like someone else because you have your ethos and peculiarity. Now that you have cogitated through how to address and reset your postulations for Signature Voice, it’s time to turn your focus to the second element of the ACE model: communication strategies. What you articulate and how you articulate it play an immense role in mooting an efficacious presence and are vital part of conditioning for Signature Voice. While postulations can assist to surge confidence, make clear our value proposition, and give efficacy to our values, communication strategies upsurge our ability to acclimatize . A leader who is a communicologist can have an efficacious presence in a plethora of situations. Your interlocution is one of the first ways that people construe you. Based on what you say, they make judgments about your presence and your competence as a leader. The following variables are essential to delineate your leadership signature , leadership approaches, participation and openness, innovation and adaption, commitment and morale, stability and control, emotional intelligence and leadership ontogenesis. The figure below shows the different variables which constitute your leadership signature. The variables of emotional intelligence, participation and openness and innovation and adoption are very vital in defining your leadership signature whether is good signature or a bad one. Leaders who manage their emotional intelligence, engage others in participation and openness are innovative , highly committed have leadership development plans have good leadership signatures and leadership signatures voices.

2.3 Theories of leadership Ontogenesis

2.3.1 A Holistic Theory for leadership Ontogenesis

The model can be delineated as proficiency-based ensuing a systems approach to progression (Kodama, 2017). It is a model propounded by Candis Best. Holistic leadership is a methodology concentrating on systemic progression that affects oneself as a leader and inspires others to follow. Holistic leadership pertains to distributed, centralised and dialectical leadership. The main variables of the theory are assessment and feedback, leadership competencies, leadership capability, development, experiences and action (Thaker, 2019). The prototype has also been mooted to expedite erudition as an undulating process and not a unitary event. The concept has also been fashioned and executed in such a way that it furnishes leaders with plethoric paraphernalia that will expedite endogenous learning. Endogenous learning can be delineated as a process in which staff have primary accountability for planning, execution and even assessing their ontogenesis. The most pragmatic way to manage the ontogenesis of managers was to furnish them with paraphernalia and instructions that will facilitate leaders for their chrysalis. In the execution of the theory, leaders received 360 degrees of evaluation results (Kodama, 2017).

2.3.2 Social Change theory for leadership ontogeny

The research Institute (2019) researched social change theory for leadership ontogenesis and found that the 7C of social change theory for leadership development. The apprehension of ego means to extricate oneself, or inessentially to be self-aware. As it is deployed in our Social Change concept for Leadership ontogenesis, apprehension of ego has dichotomous distinct but knitted related features. Day (2019) highlight that first, it implies cognisance and an acknowledgement of those comparatively stable features of the ego that foster what we call “disposition”: benefactions, interests, cravings, ethos, self-concept, boundaries, and visions. Schyler and Jironet (2019) research highlight that congruence is , sentiments, and performing with uniformity pragmatism, authenticity, and trustworthiness to others. Harmonious persons are those whose pragmatism are dependable on their utmost profound efficacy and tenets. Personal resemblance and cognisance of self are intertwined (Day, 2017).

Collaboration is another construct which must be an epicenter of ethos in any school of thought that interprets leadership as a group process. It replicates group efficaciousness because it capitalises on the plethoric gifts and perspectives of each group member and the robustness of that diversity to innovation remedies and actions (Cluthries & Osteen, 2012). The teamwork underscores the partnership features in the model. Having these communal aims propels the group’s capability to engage in teamwork scrutiny of the predicament at hand and the chore to be embarked on (Schuyler & Jironet, 2019). Hullabaloo such as incongruities is intrinsic in almost any social interlocution or group augmenting process. They take place in communal partnership in student state associations, in classrooms, in service-erudition actions, in employment situations, and in virtually every other context which encapsulate human beings in interaction with one another (The Research Institute, 2019).

2.3.3 Dynamic theory for leadership ontogenesis

Researchers have fulminated against concepts in social sciences for stasis or for not reckoning the element of time (Kakabase 2019; Clutheries & Osteen 2012; Day 2017). Concepts that fundis reckoned in the past have become fallacious over time. The dynamic school of thought of leadership ontogeny variables is the insurmountable pragmatic purpose, strategy and tactics. The researchers believe the choosing of our prudent goals is based on syllogistics (Kakabadse, 2019). Porter (1996) reminds us should not account for all behaviours since these pragmatisms should fit our strategic perspective. Tactical goals are autonomous constructs that mandate to us what to do while the strategic perspective succor us to select those goals more pertinent to our capabilities. The findings by Kakabadse (2019) shows that leadership is a chrysalis process which is planted on the typology of choice a leader makes. One should make a 24-karat taxonomy based on construing theta global lens and looking for lambda global lens. Metaphysical ideal serves as a mud hook for guaranteeing a leader gets in a ballpark to that ideal by following theta template according to comprehensive range of vision. They enunciate their comprehensive view of tactical actions that fit a range of vision.

2.3.4 Theories for Disbursements

Figure 2.1 A Theories of CEO Leadership signatures Disbursement

Source Mpunwa (2020)

The critical motivators of corporates’ accomplishment in Africa. These authors concluded that corporate accomplishment could be demystified regarding the following corporate theories: resource-based theory, agency theory, stewardship theory, and the public choice theory. The determinants affecting, and inspiring corporate’s accomplishment are diverse, and that there is no specific theory to best forecast the correlation between CEO’s disbursements and corporate performance. The idea that there is one central theory that underpins CEOs’ disbursements

2.3.4.1 Resource-Based Theory

Resource-based theory encapsulates a corporate obtaining competitive merit from its distinct resources and capabilities. Resources embrace capital in various forms, land, employees with specialised skills, and other types of resources, whereas capabilities are an enterprise ’s ability to integrate and utilise its resources to gain a competitive advantage. The resource-based theory proposes that a corporate develops its strategy based on its specific resources and capabilities.

2.3.4.2 Stewardship theory

The stewardship theory promulgated by Donaldson and Davis (1989; 1991) holds that CEOs, instead of being inspired by individual goals, act as stewards whose efforts are in tandem with the expectations of stakeholders. This theory supposes that CEOs do not always act in self-interested ways, and, if circumstances of a conflict of interests emanate, they often place the interests of the corporate above their own. This school of thought holds that the CEO wants to “do a good job, to be a good steward of the corporate assets. As a result, stewardship theory preserves that there are no inherent, general challenges of CEO motivation.”

2.3.4.3 The Agency theory

The arrangement of employee disbursements is affixed to the principal-agent theory. This theory assumes that if CEO and the rest of employees’ interests are aligned to that of shareholders, the corporate will achieve a long-term accomplishment and sustainability. The theory, therefore, is aimed at addressing what is called agency problem (risk) which arises when the expectations of the principal and that of the agent conflict each other and when it is difficult for the principal to verify what the agent is doing (Eisenhardt, 1989).

Perspectives towards the application of the agent theory are noted in the work of Hill and Jones (1992) as well as Jensen and Meckling (1976) who commended its merit in influencing the board of directors as decision makers to organised specialization, monitor accomplishment and put mechanisms to mitigate risks within a corporate. It is the applicability as policy regulation and intervention appeared to be lacking in the context of economics and social science generally. Regardless of the support, the theory has received in academia and other inquiries, it has also received criticisms. Supporting this sentiment is the work by Donaldson (1990) who questioned the premises of individualism assumed in the agency theory. Albeit, Perrow (1986) also inscribes that the theory is over-focused on the players’ self-interested attitude without taking into deliberations external factors such as social ties between the board of directors and shareholders; breadth of knowledge of the market capital structure and professional reputation.

2.3.4.4 Corporate Size as a measure of CEO disbursements

Existing pragmatic evidence unpacks that the disbursement of top administration is positively correlated with corporate size. This correlation is homogeneous with the proposition that incentives exist for administration to act in the interest of shareholders. By deployment of simple competitive model, Gabaix and Landier (2006) also demonstrate that CEO pay will rise as corporates become huge because larger average corporate size increases the returns to hiring more rich CEOs. Furthermore, Murphy (1999) presents evidence of a positive correlation between changes in the disbursement of top administration and the real rate of growth of corporate sales.

It is also a pronouncement that CEO earnings from cash disbursement increments by 0.25 per cent for every per cent upsurge in the corporate’s sales (Zhou, 2000). The two authors consent that indeed the portfolio and size of disbursements can have inspiration on the turnover and hence by innuendoes on pecuniary accomplishment and corporate size. The corporate size and pay correlation advocate the predictor that due to inherent multifarious, a larger corporate requires a competent and experienced CEO to be in charge. This sentiment, therefore, elucidates that the premium a CEO for a large corporate earn juxtaposed to the one in charge of a smaller corporate may have a significant implication in the pecuniary aspect.

2.4 Theoretical framework

Figure 2.1 Theoretical framework

Source Research Institute (2019)

This research is anchored on the Research Institute (2019) on leadership ontogenesis having independent variables of school leadership development, leadership styles, factors influencing leadership and performance, gender influence in leadership and change leaders. The dependent variables are the primary schools of Peter Nanyemba Primary Schools, Omagano Primary Schools and Eyelyehongo Primary Schools. The research argues that for leadership ontogenesis to take place, we do not need to rely only on holistic theories, social change and dynamic theories only. The essence to take into consideration independent variables such as school leadership development, leadership styles, factors influencing leadership and performance, gender influence in leadership and change leaders. The other variables are deliberated below:

2.4 Leadership Signature styles

2.4.2 Contingent leadership

The school of thought of contingent leadership is stereotypically correlated with the discourse of Bass and Bass (2019). The fundamental tenet cardinal to situational leadership is that the leader swims with the tide their leadership comportment to partners ‘maturity, incumbent upon their alacrity and proficiency to execute a specific task. Leadership styles correlate high and low on disposition and proficiency to execute a task: When sycophants are not proficient and disinclined to execute a given task, the leader grooms the followers’ actions without much regard for communal synergies (Marzano.R.J, Waters, & Mc Nulty, 2015). This designate is stamped to be as mammoth task–low relationship focus, or the “telling” style (Aarons, Ehrhart, Farahnak, & Hurlburt, 2019). When subordinates are not able but exuberant to execute the task, the leader collaborates with partners in a buoyant and social manner but still charts pragmatic direction and guidance. This designate is labelled as a colossal task–high relationship focus, or the “participating” style (Bass, Riggio, & Seltzer, 2019).

Consequently ,when partners are able but disinclined to execute the task, the leader does not have to furnish much navigation but must convince followers to interlink in the task. This designate is stamped as a low task–low correlation focus, or the “selling” style. When followers can execute the activities , the leader leaves the execution of the task to the superordinates with little or no prying, cardinal gullibility of followers to attain the task on their own. This tactic is designated as a low task–high correlation focus, or the “delegating” style. The efficacious leader is dexterous in all quadruplicate styles and knows the capability level of followers, along with their concurrence, execute specific tasks (Parsloe & Leedham, 2009). The efficacious leader circumscribes that no one leadership style is appropriate for all followers and all situations accurately discerns which styles are congruous for which followers in which situations (Bass & Bass, 2019).

2.4.3 Transactional leadership

Leaders concentrate on the interlocution correlation between the pacesetter and the devotee. The interactions “encapsulates direction from the pacesetter or shared deliberations with the devotee about prerequisites to attain desiderate objectives” (Bass and Bass, 2008:618). Analogous to the LMX theory, pacesetters inclination to hit the bull’s eye on the needs of pacesetters and anticipate the analogous quantum of execution from them in interface. Lowe, (2012) surmised the physiognomies of assignable pacesetters according to as follows: “[...] percolates within the prevailing configuration or ethos, prefers risk avoidance, pays cogitation to time constrictions and efficacy, and prefers process over ingredient as a means for preserving control. The dexterous transactional leader is ostensible to be efficacious in stable, predictable ecosystem [...]” (Lowe et al., 1996: 387). Bass, (2013) asserted on historical pacesetting school of thoughts up to the late 1970s that the pragmatic leadership research has fundamentally concentrated on the commensurate of transactional leadership, ensample, how to track goals, how to elucidate roles and how to recompense or sanction others.

2.4.4 Transformational leaders

Transformational pacesetters can predispose followers “to do more than the devotees originally inclined and thought feasible” (Bass and Bass, 2019: 618) by adrenalizing cognitive awareness or addressing analogous goals etc. Lowe et al. (1996) surmised the physiognomies of transformational leaders as follows: “[...] pursue novel ways of execution, pursue prospects in the face of risk, desiderate efficacious answers to human capital answers, and are less prospective to advocate the status. Transformational leaders may deploy transactional strategies when specific, but they also incline to utilise symbolism and imagery to solicit increased effort” (Bass, Riggio, & Seltzer, 2019). The figure 2.2 makes a distinction between transformational and transactional pacesetting. At the epicenter of transformation leadership are variables of cognitive stimulation and personalized commensuration. As juxtaposed with transformational leadership transactional leadership has a variable of situational incentives (Bass, Riggio, & Seltzer, 2019).

2.4.5 Autocratic leadership

Mehotra (2019) asserts that tyrannous leadership consolidate power and adjudication process in themselves. They configure the whole work latitude for their partners who are anticipated to execute what they are instructed to do. The pacesetter’s shoulder authority and adopt the responsibility and accountability. Autocratic leadership makes decisions on his or her own and then broadcasts those decisions to the group. The following superintendence styles are articulated by Blake and Mouton (1978:11-13): The tyrannous style (9.1): The pacesetters put the cards on the table on concern for saddle (scale 9) and tiniest shooting match for people (scale 1). The shooting match is done by deploying formal authority and control over subordinates which is obtained by egging on compliance (Adams, 2019).

2.4.6 Democratic leadership

Iqbal (2019) articulates that democratic leadership in which the leader solicits input from subordinates. The following superintendence styles are articulated by Blake and Mouton (1978:11-13): Democratic leadership style (1.9): The leader reveals tiniest regard for saddle (scale 1) and optimum apprehension for people (scale 9). Good interlocutory correlation with colleagues and subordinates are of primary apprehension. If this is good, the task will be done automatically and participatory by the devotee (Mehotra, 2019). Democratic leaders decentralise power, participative and the decisions are not unilateral because they emanate from a consultation. The pacesetter and team are acting as a gregarious unit. Leaders having team building pursue to ensconce a trusting, open linkage with employees. They have the efficacy configuration, which places a high ethos on the ability of the employees to enhance the adjudication process. (Iqbal, 2019). Adams (2019) contends that, during the transformation, when policing had to transform from tyrannous to a democratic style, the transformational changes affected adversely on the leadership ingredient of the strategic approach.

2.4.6.1 Leadership style signature behaviour to academic achievement.

66.6% of the people surveyed demonstrate that they engage in a democratic style of leadership in schools. 14% are autocratic leaders and engage in laisez faire. 4.7 % of those who participated articulated the leadership engage in transformational leadership style.

Uuyuni, (2018) Different leadership Signature styles

The findings of this research seem to parallel Karadag (2016) the positive effect of democratic and transformational leadership in each school indirectly impact the performance of the school. Democratic and transformational leadership seem to achieve high performance than autocratic and laissez fare school leadership. Findings show that excellent leadership has a positive impact on the school performance. The favourable milieu of the school makes sure there is increased high performance of staff, advocates moral and enhances academic achievement. The positive impact of leadership was found to attract high performance in academic achievement. The adverse effect of leadership was seen to be attracting low performance in academic achievement. The findings seem to be analogous with the notion that leadership behaviour of managers has an impact on the school climate (Goleman, 2017). The results show that excellent leadership has a medium magnitude impact on school performance culture. The positive relationship between effective leadership such as transformational and democratic leadership style has a positive effect on job satisfaction and academic achievement. (Karadag, 2016). The findings of this research concur with Goleman (2017) who articulates that coercive style may be suitable in a turnaround but preclude school flexibility and negatively affects student’s inspiration. The pacesetting leadership style sets an excellent performance and a good example which yields a positive effect on students, and such leaders furnish high performance (Goleman, 2017).

The coefficient autocorrelations for leadership styles shows that they are all less than the p values of 0.05 which shows that they are not within the acceptable regions to improve the relationship between leadership through professional development for low-performance schools. The results show that there is a need to improve leadership styles for low-performance schools. The descriptive statistics show that the means for accountability of Head of department and Accountability of teachers, have high means which is an indication that the variables are better regarding performance than other variables. When variables have higher means, it is an indication of their popularity. Leadership should be accountable for low performance in schools. Effective communication has a low mean than accountability of teachers, principals and head of departments. Effective communication should be preserved in the relationship between leadership governance and academic achievement.

In determining the significant relationship between leadership styles and performance of schoolteachers. The coefficient p values of leadership styles and performance of school principals are 0.7. The coefficient p values for leadership styles and performance of school’s teachers is 0.9. The aftereffects show that there is a significant positive relationship between the performance of the school’s teachers and leadership styles. It can be assumed that worthless leadership styles can affect academic performance in high schools. Good leadership styles can also impact on the performance of head of departments, teachers and principals.

2.5 Cambietics in leadership Signatures

The researcher argues that people are calling for change in leadership. Leadership is vital in efficacious execution of innovation in the corporate and healthiness in specific, but the pacesetter takes actions within the lexicon of a school. Coherence of corporate strategies across portfolios with leadership efficaciousness upsurge the probability that corporates will be able to execute and sustain cambietics effectively. For instance, the school level (for instance incorporated portfolio) and the assemblage level (i.e., first level) are both reckoned as crucial in plethoric execution frame of reference (Aarons, Ehrhart, Farahnak, & Hurlburt, 2019). Gephardt (2019) researched by deploying a unique methodology in which participants were 12 emotionally intelligence service team pacesetters and their staff (n = 100) from three miscellaneous agencies that furnish emotionally intelligent services to juveniles and families in California, USA. Pacesetters were inconsistently chosen to the 6-month LOCI strategy or a two-session pacesetting webinar control condition furnished by a unique leadership training organisation. The researchers utilized a mixed method with quantitative surveys and qualitative data gathered via surveys and a focus group of LOCI trainees. The findings were that quantitative and qualitative analyses advocate the LOCI training and organisational strategy strategies regarding feasibility, acceptability, and perceived utility, as well as the effect on the leader and subordinate -rated outcomes (Gerhardt, 2019).

2.6 Gender influence leadership signatures

Mubakeng (2020) explored on the gender influence leadership the results from the survey, unravels that 58.0% of those observed were effeminate, while the remaining 42.0% were paternal. Both effeminate and paternal construe successful managers as paternal ; effeminate schools convey the performance to accomplish not as better than paternal corporate since effeminate are held up with domesticity and cultural ethos and therefore not able to upsurge their enterprise like the patriarchal doppelganger. A cogitation manager thinks male stereotype construe management as identified long ago which persists today. Even in Japan, today, females are not appointed into a leadership position for traditional leadership. The efficacy of think manager, think male remains embedded in our community, and both men and women proceed to delineate managers as predominantly masculine characteristics (Bilimoria, 2017). This also exposed that plethoric SMEs in Thika have proprietors and run by male-controlled society who may be imputed to the domineering patriarchal ethos in Kenya where women are expected to deal with domesticity and the deleterious misogynism of women regarding property rights which deters women’s access to collateral security for bank credit. Analogously, women are restricted to informal sources of capital, which encapsulates their savings, money from family and mutual guarantee loans hence a hindrance to starting businesses (Mubakeng, 2020).

2.7 Factors influencing leadership and Performance

2.7.1 Leadership signature style and performance

The researcher argues that there is a link between leadership ontogenesis and leadership performance. Ortigoza (2019)articulates that plethoric enterprise that appeared to be floundering had attained novel rigour when strategic leaders were replaced. Leadership capabilities and competencies in directing are crucial factors in managers effectiveness. Multi-level analysis has been deployed to recognise the degree to which leadership styles affect student performance. Results demonstrate that efficacious types of management styles in school helps students reach higher achievement levels in mathematics (Bush, 2007). Leadership style is not an easy thing to undergo. It has an implicature that one would know how to motivate one’s subordinates to accomplish assignments with maximum efficiency. Leadership style should be consequently congruent with subordinate’s nature, attitudes and desires (Ortigoza, 2019) Knowing the needs of your team partners is essential in reaching the high performance of your subordinates.

2.7.2 Consultative leadership and performance

Welch (2013) executed a discourse to recognise the management and faculty impression on construed and desired human resources management in terms of corporate processes. Welch (2013) highlighted that the participative system is the most effective because it satisfies a plethoric of human needs. Significant groups were taken by the teams themselves to be inclined to attain high performance, high targets and excellent production (Welch, 2013). Consultative transactional pacesetting is the most efficacious and useful assignable leadership approach. This type of transactional leader sets goals, elucidates desired causatum, interacts rewards and gratitude for attainments suggests or consults, furnishes feedback, and renders employees praise when it is deserved (Marzano.R.J, Waters, & Mc Nulty, 2015)

2.7.3 Organisational Culture Change

Packard (2020) asserts that to cede blue-ribbon service, efficacious services and on the taxonomy of pacesetting correlated with an ethos which advocate effective services. This is a vital hyped -out because the ethos is a transition through which pacesetting travels and affects corporate performance.Pacesetters play a crucial role in “embedding” and transposing the ethos that they have efficacy with corporate execution (Mpunwa, 2019). Schein (2004) has deployed Lewin’s taxonomically concept of unfreezing, cambietics, and solidifying on demonstrating how staff’ hand in glove the cambietics. Unfreezing moots vacillation in staff’ cognitive system by executing the disconfirming data, which magnets a staff to have efficacy that current precedence are not comfortable. Formal and informal training, with vital participation of staff in the erudition process, can be advocated by “ethos fields” where it is unassailable to try new behaviours, advocated by coaches and vital feedback. Leaders act as role models for the novel ways of cogitation, and support groups can aid staff in the learning process (Packard, 2020).

2.8 Methods of School leadership ontogenesis

Leadership ontogenesis can be correlated and construed to upsurging and augmenting leaders and events like chrysalis, ontogeny, action learning, and 360-degree feedback are acceleration fundamental ingredients of leadership augmenting ingenuities (Gerhardt, 2019). Auditorium training should not be construed only as being part of a leadership ontogeny initiative and maybe the least critical. While training may even be a crucial hint of leadership ontogenesis , developmental pragmatics is possibly to have the significant impact when they can be correlated to or entrenched in a person’s continuing task and when they are collaborated set of pragmatics (Lokkesmore, 2019).

Leadership ontogenesis synergies predominantly take two configurations: chrysalis and maturation. Chrysalis encapsulates pragmatic, goal-focused taxonomies of one-on-one learning and, conceptually, behavioural change. It can be a short-term action inclined to inculcate specific leadership dexterity or a more all-embracing process encapsulating a sequence of meetings over time (Parsloe & Leedham, 2009).

Hawkins (2013) executed a study on mentoring is archetypically delineated as a dedicated, strategic correlation in which a mature person advocates the individual and grooming of a novice. It may be an official order of events or unofficial process. Identifying the ethos of maturation, corporates are surging ways to formalise these typologies of connections as part of their leadership ontogenesis. In plethoric corporates, matured people are construed to foster, if not make sure, the chrysalis and victory of talented newcomers. Surging, mid-career leaders seek tutors when they wish to moot new levels of dexterity and to advance in the corporate.

Parsole and Leedham (2009) findings asserted that action learning is a conventional way of organisation ontogeny customs in which significant problem-solving corporate predicaments are confronted. Three taxonomies of aspirants are hunted: delivering measurable corporate results, communicating learnings specific to a situation, and crafting more general leadership dexterities and capabilities. Live-action erudition may require gamut from tacit, unfacilitated erudition at work to concentrated and high-impact learning projects to transformations of people and corporations (Hawkins, 2013).

2.9 Effect of good leadership corporate governance on corporate performance

Persistence in compliance aid organisations to benefit from proficient business processes that will enrich corporate performance and capabilities, operational management, harmonisation, create firm worth and mostly boost shareholders’ wealth. Although Masunda (2013) is of the same view with the above literature “that there is no inherent, general problem of executive motivation” he related his argument more on “given the absence of an inner challenge among executives, there is the question of how far executives can attain the good corporate performance to which they motivate”. Hence his statements of stewardship were that “performance variations emanate from whether the structural circumstance in which the executive is situated facilitates effective action by the executive” and which questioned if corporate edifices assist senior management in articulating and crafting “plans for high corporate performance (Masunda, 2013)”. Ho (2008) cited by Strecker (2009) established that “traditional organisational management is no longer reckoned an appropriate blueprint in this highly rival global market. Consequently, the enterprise must compete for their survival through continuous improvement and innovation to maintain or gain market advantages”. Moreover, as a result, firms need to be the pioneers in their area of functionality to maintain their survival, although “resistance to innovation is likely to result in crumbled enterprises” according to the author. Ho (2008) goes further to cite (Venkatraman and Ramanujam, 1986; Hamon, 2003) who defined Organisational Performance as “an indicator which evaluates how well an enterprise attain their objectives” as well as Schermerhorn et al. (2002) who agrees that “performance refers to the quality and quantity of individual or group work achievement”. Masunda (2013) in contrast, cited Namisi (2002) and defined “performance of the organisation as the extent to which a corporate receives a return on investment on its capital invested”. Although the terms ‘Or generational Performance and Corporate Performance are used interchangeably in most of the literature, they seem to have the same semantics and can be classified as the assessment of a firm’s conduct in pursuit of its effectiveness and efficiency in realising its intended outcomes (Strecker, 2009). The Namibian government initiative to regulate its PEs is supported by Qi et al. (2000), that the “ownership structure elements and relative dominance by various classes of shareholders can affect the performance of state-owned enterprise SOE. - Transformed and listed firms”. The authors indicate that reformation of PEs became attainment of the Chinese economy during this when the Chinese adopted a market-oriented approach. The results are “competitive markets created for products and factors of production”, leading to “SOEs that can be successfully transformed from loss-making cost centres into profitable, return-oriented investment centres without radical changes in ownership structure”. However, the Chinese methodology worked in significantly improving the growth of its economy but still failed to augment the performance of SOEs, the writers found.

2.9.1 Effective school leadership Signatures

The researcher argues that effective school leadership has been typing cast according to qualities displayed by successful leaders as well the opinions of teachers. The researcher concurs with Burns (2012) who furnishes a general explanation of leadership as the inspiration of persons to attain goals held reciprocally by leaders and followers using institutional, economic, cognitive, and other resources. These goals imply “the values and the motivations—the wants and needs, the aspiration and prospects—of both leaders and followers (Burns, 2012)”. As indicated by Burns, leadership can be contingent upon consanguinity and shared values between leaders and followers. The researcher differs from Elmore (2000), and others who have “deromanticised” leadership as their research reveals the qualities of effective leaders. Rather than high-profile, charismatic leaders, the “good-to-great leaders” in Collins’ research were more perspective to “channel their psyche” into the larger goals for their entity as “their hankering is first and foremost for the institution, not themselves”. Collins calls these leaders “Level 5 Executive” leaders who build “lasting magnitude through an enigmatic blend of personal humility and professional will”. Collins recognises the levels of leadership as follows: Level 1: Highly Proficient Individual Level 2: Causative Team Member Level 3: Capable Manager Level 4: Operative Leader Level 5: Executive.

6.67% articulated that there is a commitment from learners and teachers. 20% also articulated that there are functional policies and discipline within the schools (16.6%). 16.6% indicated that there is no delay in delivery of fixed and teachers are appointed time. 10% of the respondents indicated that there is proper management of school funds in high performing schools while the remaining 16.6% of the respondents stated that the teachers are qualified and committed to teaching in schools. High performing schools have a dedication from both learners and subject teachers as well as parental involvement. Some teachers stated that there are good school activities and functional policies for high performing schools. Teachers echoed the availability of textbooks and employment of best-qualified teachers for specific subjects. Teachers have strict adherence to the registers for both learners and teachers. In high performing schools, there is government involvement, distribution of the money on time, textbooks, stationery and all other materials. In performing schools, there is a proper allocation of funds, and the quality of education is high. LRC members highlighted the teacher-learner parent co-operation, good leadership style and discipline and commitment among the learners.

10.34% of the respondents articulated that there is a commitment from learners while 24.14% of the respondents stated that there is a lack of guidance and clear-cut policies. 13.7% of the respondents enunciated that in low performing schools there is a lack of resources. 17.24% expressed delay in delivery of stationery and resources while 69% stated there is poor management of funds. 17.24% of the people surveyed highlighted that the teachers are not qualified to teach students in low performing schools. Respondents articulated that in Low performing schools there is no involvement from parents at the school and most of the parents are at the north, learners are at their own and the worst part the hostels are closed for renovations. While in low performing schools they lack guideline as well as clear-cut policies to govern the schools. There are disciplinary challenges in the low performing schools which results in low attendance by parents in school’s activities. Low performing schools are devoid of resources such as printers not available and internet services for the child. Respondents from low performing schools were not happy with the appointment of teachers in which the Regional office does not appoint teachers on time and procurement of stationery is not done on time. In low performing schools, there is slow involvement of the Regional office in the appointment of teaching staff on time. Some parents stated that for low performing schools there was a need to first for the government to determine the cause of poor performance of schools before the state embarks on the much-needed solution. Every problem in that area has its cause the root of low performance should be established first. In low performing schools, there is substance abuse and a shortage of study material. LRC for low performing schools stated that low performing schools were poorly managed, lack proactiveness, have poor communication levels and does not have books.

2.10 Conclusion

Leadership progression is the enlargement of a person’s capability to be efficacious in leadership physiognomies and processes. Leadership ontogenesis as “an exertion (hopefully, planned in physiognomy ) that augments the learner’s capability to lead people. In layman, language leading is charting direction and guiding others to follow that direction. Leadership ontogenesis is a recurrent process rather than intermittent . The researcher argues that leadership ontogeny leads to high performance.

Chapter 3: Research Methodology

3.1 Introduction

This section covers the research design, research philosophies, data gathering methods, research procedures and the research ethics of the discourse.

3.2 Research design

Research design is delineated by Blaike and Voorksen (1991:21) “as an umbrella configuration of a piece of discourse , encapsulating what typology of pragmatics composed from where, and how such pragmatism is decoded in order to furnish good elucidation to the substratal research questions”. The research design also proffers the linkage on research questions, empirical data and research conclusion. In colloquial language a research design is a systematic plan from mobility from extraneous, where here is delineated as the antecedent sets of questions to be given a snappy back, there is a set of inferences to be reached about the research questions. The different taxonomies of research designs are case studies, experiments, social surveys, field works, cross-sectional discourse, action research, evaluation discourse and impact assessment (Blaike & Voorskou, 2019). The research design for this work is purely a case study, comprising of three primary schools.

3.2.1 Case study

Harling (2013) is an aggregate inquiry that scrutinize a voguish phenomenon within its spontaneous setting. It should be enunciated that case studies seldom generate holistic new appreciation but rather transmogrify grand generalisations, which may be further transfigured with additional case studies (Stake, 2013). Yin (2018) delineates case studies as being on pins and needles with how and why things stumbled upon, allowing the scrutiny of contextual pragmatism and the variations between what was on the docket and what transpired. Stake (2015) unravels three typologies of case studies, namely, descriptive, interpretive and evaluative case studies. Farquhar (2016) descriptive case study resembles a whole shebang account of any paradox under scrutiny, though they are also conceptual. Interpretive case studies are deployed to cherish pre-existing school of thoughts or to portray, lend support, or interrogate grounded school of thought before the gathering of research data. An evaluative case study ‘embodies “chunky” delineation, is predicated, holistic and life-like, makes transparent data but most conspicuously , weighs up the data to attract a judgement to be made’. In this case study, the focus was on three cases that are immensely intended to be ‘interpretive’ in physiognomy because it is deployed to foster conceptual taxonomies (Yin, 2015)

3.2.2 Justification of the Case Study Approach

The cardinal merits of deploying a case study is that it furnishes profound illumination than what is accessible through other nuts and bolts such as inquiry that allow the presentation of data from plethoric methods furnishing the holistic story (Yin, 2018). The Case study is also crucial in examining contemporary events when the appropriate behaviours cannot be engineered. Even though case studies and history at times overlap, the case study robustness is its capability to deal with a diverse of evidence beyond what might be available. A case study was deployed in this discourse because of the predicament of research on leadership ontogeny. The conundrum could not be unravelled without situating the physiognomy in a case study of three primary schools. The case study of school leadership was not inclined to unravel other matters in the state, instead to focus on issues of leadership ontogenesis where profound and prolific statistics of the three primary schools were employed (Gerring, 2018). Thus, Yin (2017:45) contended that case studies could encapsulate, and even be restricted to, quantitative pragmatics and are not restricted to qualitative verification only.

3.3. Research Philosophy

Philosophy on pins and needles demonstrates crafting the capability to reason and the role of reasoning in crafting a coherent world perspective (Burrel & Morgon, 2019). The contribution that the rubric of cognitive and philosophy makes to students lies in their attainment of the human capital, skills and processes of rational thought. These unswervingly affect the students’ quality of life, not only recognising the rational physiognomy of their own decisions but also their responses to the views of others for this research, selecting an overall research philosophy is the choice made by sophist. The subsequent fundis have highlighted the central components of this choice ( Easterby-Smith et al. 2011; Hussey and Hussey 2012; Saunders, 2013 ). Easterby- Smith (2011:27) offers these visages of prototypes, as demonstrated in the table below

Table 3.1 Features of Philosophical paradigms

Source Easter by-Smith (2018:27) features of philosophical paradigms

Phenomenology shows how we, as personage penetrate and imbibe the ecosystem of the universe. In symbolic reciprocal actions, we are in a recurrent process of apprehending the gregarious universe in that we construe the pragmatism of others with whom we make reciprocal actions, and this clarification leads to the delineation deploying our optical lenses of our semantics and actions (Collins & Hussey, 2018). Burrell and Morgan (2019) assert that ontology pins and needles with the physiognomy of reality as juxtaposed with epistemological digestions, this raises questions of researchers have about the way the school leadership ontogeny operates. Easterby-Smith &Thorpe (2018) delineate ontology as the science and rubric of being or existence, and the basic taxonomies and linkages to determine what and what types of entities exist. Ontologically speaking, the critical question would be: What is the essence of reality? In the context of this research, the reality of the current context of leadership and leadership ontogenesis program within the three-primary case, the backdrop against which an enquiry into the theoretical stance of leadership in involved schools is posed.
