Dr. Brenda R. Beatty

Dr. Beatty's recent chapter in The Essentials of School Leadership documents some of the results of her research with principals in six different countries to explore the emotions of school leadership. Her emotional epistemologies theoretical framework has been used to explore and transform leadership development in various contexts, with a view to preparing leaders to be effective change agents in their organisations. Presently, as Director of the Master in School Leadership she is pursuing the application of her theoretical framework with aspirant school leaders across Victoria. Her work in Australia, formerly at Texas STate University and before that, at OISE University of Toronto led to her dissertation receiving the Thomas B. Greenfield Award for Doctoral Dissertation of the year in Canada. Reconceptualising the emotional dimension as a knowledge creating aspect of mind assists in developing capabilities for inner leadership of self and others. This work has applications across all organisations in all sectors.
