Abstract

This study investigated the correlates of successful transformational educational leadership through the views and lived experiences of the participants from Talisay City National High School, Cebu, Philippines consisting of two (2) administrative, two (2) non-teaching and nine (9) teaching personnel following a qualitative descriptive phenomenological method utilizing Colaizzi’s (1978) seven steps of data analysis. As supported by the data extracts of the study, four themes (4) are figured out, to wit: “lead to change,” “harmony amidst diversity,” “profession as passion” and “lead by example”. As revealed, commitment, intra and interrelationship and leader’s influence (lead to change and lead by example) greatly affect the success of transformational educational leadership while financial (profession as passion) aspect revealed to be the least among the five.
