Optimizing Middle Managers' Performance During Crises: Some Practical Transactional and Transformational Leadership Strategies for Schools
Dacia M. Smith (Unicaf University, Zambia)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-6684-4331-6.ch007
The chapter presents the results of a qualitative study using Glaser and Strauss' grounded theory design. The problem identifies the need for suitable leadership styles for application during crises in schools for unlocking high performance. Therefore, the study evaluated the viability of the transformational and transactional leadership styles as tools used by middle managers for leading during crises in schools. A sample consisting of five middle managers were used from primary and secondary schools in Jamaica, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, and the Bahamas. Subsequently, the data collection process utilized primary research using semi-structured interviews. The results of the study highlighted significant evidence that high performance in schools during crises may be dependent on adaptability, promoting collaboration, and intentional accountability regimes. A limitation of the study also exposed the absence of a model for transmission of the leadership styles by middle managers in schools, and a need for future research.

Creativity, Digitality, and Teacher Professional Development: Unifying Theory, Research, and Practice
This is the structure that supports the theory of a research study or line of research endeavor. The framework describes the theory that connects to the line of research and explains why a given research problem is of interest for study. It organizes a use of theory to allow research to uncover the meaning, nature, and challenges of a phenomenon. This allows a line of research to provide knowledge and understanding to act in more informed and effective ways.

Creativity and Innovation: The Need for Cognitive Skills and Abilities in Developing Entrepreneurs of the Future
Grounded on social cognitive career theory to explain individual entrepreneurial activity, positing that this theory accounts for the complexity and diversity of mechanisms and conditions that matter for entrepreneurial intentions, contrasting with classic intention-based models which consider entrepreneurship as a sequential process, undermining the uncertainty and non-linearity of the entrepreneurial journey ( Santos & Liguori, 2019 ).

Legitimizing Integral Theory in Academia: Demonstrating the Effectiveness of Integral Theory Through Its Application in Research
This term is also used differently by different researchers; therefore, each researcher has to define how they use it in their work. I use theoretical framework as the theoretical model or theory that describes some aspect of the research problem. So this element deals with some aspect of the content (not design) of the investigation. It could influence the design, if it requires that particular kinds of questions need to be asked in a specific quadrant, but its major role in the analysis of the findings. A theoretical framework is associated with one particular quadrant ontology, so in IMP it is possible to employ four different theoretical frameworks in the analysis.
