School leadership training: Are we preparing future talent managers? [link]Paper  abstract   bibtex   
Effective leadrship talent management practices are important components of successful organizations. This correlational quantitative study is designed to inform educational leadership training programs in their work to revise their curricula and to utilize the candidates’ perception data to ensure successful program delivery and outcomes. Particularly, the findings of this study aim to inform educational leadership preparation practices on developing talent managers who can recruit, hire, retain, and support the most talented and high qualified teachers, as well as support staff available in the education job market. Results indicate that after completing the first year of educational leadership training only around half of the aspiring school leaders felt performance or impact ready to serve as talent managers, in order to select and develop highly qualified educators to increase the success of all students. The findings also suggest the importance of understanding how various factors predict an individual’s perception of preparedness to perform talent management leadership activities. Therefore, the study results may serve to enrich conversations of educational leadership training programs, guide program evaluation efforts, and help ensure candidates in educational leadership programs are exposed to talent management and strategies in their coursework. This may help future school leaders clearly and purposefully apply their knowledge and skills.
