In education today there is a move away from top-down leadership toward a more inclusive, shared or participative leadership model. This model includes shared decision-making, which has the potential to empower and radically change any organization willing to take the risk of implementing this type of leadership. This article combines another important aspect of leadership to the concept of shared decision-making: servant leadership. With a servant-leader at the helm and shared decision-making in place, a school has the potential to grow in sync with the needs and desires of its stakeholders.
